GSC007DL (MONO) - Chopin: Concerto No. 2 in f minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 21 - Carmen Vitos, pianist - Vienna Festival Orchestra/Hans Swarowsky; Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola, K. 364 - Walter Schneiderhahn, violin; Paul Angerer, viola; Vienna Festival Orchestra/Franz Litschauer - Music Treasures of the World was one of many subscription labels that popped up during the Golden Age of the LP. Some of the recordings offered were of lesser quality than other labels, but occasionally a real gem would appear, such as this collection of Chopin and Mozart, its tie-in being the Vienna Festival Orchestra as the accompanying ensemble. The Chopin receives a wonderfully radiant performance from pianist Carmen Vitos, with the ubiquitous Hans Swarowsky conducting. The Mozart Sinfonia Concertante is also a quite enjoyable run-through, ably accompanied by the Vienna Festival Orchestra (more than likely a pseudonym for the Vienna State Opera Orchestra, used for licensing purposes). Thanks to John Whitmore for transcribing the LP.
