Baumgartner: Mozart 4 Divertimenti - Epic LC 3081 (Andy Warhol cover art)


This handsome and extraordinarily rare LP from Epic (LC 3081, US pressing, yellow radial label, mono) features what is arguably among the rarest of the albums for which the great Andy Warhol executed the cover art. In addition, unlike some of the other jackets graced by his work, this particular one even bears the clear attribution "Warhol" in the lower-right corner.


This album was issued in 1956 as part of the label's Mozart Jubilee series and is highly elusive. It contains four Mozart Wind Divertimentos with the Wind Instrument Ensemble of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the eminent Mozart conductor and scholar Bernard Paumgartner.


The exact contents are as follows, all works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:


Divertimento No. 12 in E-flat Major K. 252


Divertimento No. 16 in E-flat Major K. 289


Divertimento No. 13 in F Major K. 253


Divertimento No. 14 in B-flat Major K. 270


All four works are brought off with an Authentic Viennese charm and spirited vitality, and the sound is well-balanced and of Philips' top drawer.


The reverse side of the jacket carries erudite and eloquent liner notes by Eugene Bruck, printed in English only.



The gradations of condition I use are as follows: MINT, Near-Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor.


The condition of the jacket is VERY GOOD+. There is discoloration along the spine, a bit of scuffing to the lower front of the jacket, and some writing to the rear panel. However, there are no seamsplits, bends, or other defects. The fine laminate finish is perfectly intact and the album remains solid, bright, and glossy – overall, a handsome collector's copy, suitable for framing.


The condition of the LP itself is VERY GOOD. Though there is light surface noise, in general the playback remains quite fine. However, if you must have a flawless or near-MINT surfaces, then please do not buy this LP. Overall, this rates as a very good collector's copy.
