What happens when you put together the best turntablists in the world to celebrate the first 12″ LP ever issued in Japan, back in 1948?
The iconic album is the New York Philharmonic Orchestra’s rendition of Mendelssohn Concerto in E minor and the event was created by Technics, maker of the classic SL-1200 turntable (reissued in 2017 with a higher-end, pretty expensive version!).
The Philharmonic Turntable Orchestra brings together numerous Disco Mix Club (DMC) World and U.S. DJ champions from the past 20-plus years (among them, DJ Switch, DJ Swamp, DJ Kentaro, and DJ QBert).
Also, check out the Behind The Beats video with some extra juicy “making of” moments from the event:
We’ll never know what Mendelssohn would think of this performance, but we definitely enjoyed it!
