About

‘Zubin Mehta: The Decca Years’ has celebrated Mehta’s wide-ranging Decca recordings. Re-released by popular demand is Mehta’s recording of Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony, the ‘Romantic’ (in the Nowak edition of 1878–80) with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, coupled with an early Vienna Philharmonic recording of the Prelude to the first act of Wagner’s Meistersinger.

‘The Decca engineers have now certainly got the measure of Royce Hall, Los Angeles, with rich reverberation wrapping round the bald Brucknerian textures […] I have never before known this music sound so like Wagner. […] In all four movements Mehta with his suave style is a degree more extrovert [than the versions by Kertesz and Haitink]’ - (Bruckner) Gramophone, April 1971

Recording locations:
- Royce Hall, Los Angeles, USA, 13 April 1970 (Bruckner)
- Sofiensaal, Vienna, Austria, 2 & 13 January 1966 (Wagner)
