This month’s albums for Society of Sound members include Bernard Haitink’s staggering recording of Beethoven’s ninth symphony from the LSO live archives as well as a brand new handpicked compilation, A Retrospective, by folk wonders The Unthanks.
The Unthanks sisters’ atmospheric tales of love, loss, birth, death, brawls and booze meant their second album was Mercury Award-nominated and this compilation includes tracks from all three of their albums plus a brand new track from their forthcoming album ‘Last’.
The LSO are on magnificient form with this magisterial recording concluding Haitink’s complete set of Beethoven symphonies in a triumphant fashion.
As with all Society of Sound albums, we try and bring you a mixture of music you know and some you haven’t yet discovered but all recorded beautifully to really bring out the best in your speakers.
We hope you enjoy them.
