Background on this item -
Walter, Bruno, 1876-1962, German-American conductor, b. Berlin as Bruno Walter Schlesinger. Walter studied at the Stern Conservatory in Berlin. After he had conducted in several German cities, Gustav Mahler appointed him (1901) assistant conductor of the Vienna State Opera, where he remained until 1912. Walter was musical director of the Munich Opera (1912-22) and of the Municipal Opera, Berlin (1925-29), and appeared at Covent Garden and the Salzburg Festival. He made his American debut in 1923. While conductor of the Gewandhaus Concerts in Leipzig (1929-33), he was forced by the Nazis to leave Germany. He returned to the Vienna Opera in 1935 but left in 1938, when the Nazis took over Austria. Walter became a permanent resident of the United States in 1939. He conducted the Metropolitan Opera, the NBC Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, and other American ensembles, being permanent conductor of the New York Philharmonic from 1947 to 1949. His performances had technical accuracy, controlled balance and inner details, expressive phrasing, rhetorical emphasis, and contrasting power and lyricism. Walter was renowned as an interpreter of the German and Austrian classics and was a friend and champion of Mahler. He wrote Gustav Mahler (tr. 1941), an autobiography, Theme and Variations (1946), and Of Music and Music-Making (1961).

1. Das Lied Von Der Erde

The LP jacket is in Near Mint minus condition!
The jacket is completely intact with NO seam splits! The  jacket shows some light shelf wear, primarily weakening at the corners and seams. It has the flipped over, clam shell seams at both the top and bottom seams. Some light color fading is evident on both sides of the jacket. Further there is a bit of paint that has been "lifted off" the cover due to a couple of price stickers that were removed at one time. Have a close look at the pictures and you will better see what we are referring to.
The jacket has NO drill holes or saw marks of any kind.
There is NO hand writing on the front or back of the jacket.
LP comes complete with a leaflet / libretto in near mint shape.
The cover has clean and sharp colors, just a bit of fading/staining due to age - see pictures with this listing for more detail.

The LP (vinyl) itself:
The LP is in NEAR MINT minus condition. - A finer copy of this vintage LP would be very difficult to find.
The LP retains much of the original gloss and sheen!
The record has NO serious marks on it, obviously well taken care of.
The record labels have NO significant spindle marks on them.
This is the superb copy you have always wanted in your collection - any super picky audiophile should be happy with this one!
This LP may have some light marks (spider marks mostly) which are caused by sliding the LP in and out of the inner sleeve and are usually not audible on most audio systems.

Please understand that this is a vintage LP record - as such, one cannot expect the vinyl to sound like a brand new, audiophile pressing! Some noise is inevitable - for best results, always properly clean your LPs before playing them.

The LP is an audiophile quality pressing (any collector of fine MFSL, half speeds, direct to discs, Japanese/UK pressings etc., can attest to the difference a quality pressing can make to an audio system).

A Short Note About LP GRADING -
