    Furtwängler's 135th anniversary! 2021 Release of advanced analog LP with new remastered sound source!

    Despite making a name for himself as an interpreter of Wagner and Bruckner, Furtwängler consistently loved Beethoven's music. Furtwängler played Beethoven's symphonies over and over again and became more and more dominant as a concert program in the last few years. Furtwängler was the culmination of a traditional German conductor. In that view, the score conveys only part of the truth. According to renowned critic Neville Cardus, "Furtwängler does not consider the printed sheet music to be the final statement, but to the vast majority of symbols of imaginative concepts, constantly changing and always subjective. I felt it and realized it. " The first move of "Hero" in this 1952 Wiener Musikverein studio recording is a great example of his flexible yet organic tempo treatment. The tempo changes in response to the ever-changing pulsations of a drama, but everything is driven and permeated by a single underlying impulse. At the same time, the conductor's interest in balance and clarity is like we hear everything. All the melody lines sound brilliant and all the sharp accents speak for themselves. Lyrical and heroic conflicts are fused into the single act of recreating joy.
    The two symphonies recorded here are 24bit / 192kHz remastered from the original master tape by Studio Art & Son in 2021 for the "New Furtwangler Complete Works" scheduled to be released in the fall of 2021. The LP will be the first public release of this new remastering. The newest remastered sound source so far was from Abbey Road Studios in 2010-2011, but this time it is left on the master tape more than ever with the latest equipment and a careful new remaster with even higher bits. The record has been reproduced. This sound source will be released in advance with this 180g analog LP (limited quantity production) and digital distribution only.

    Is this a new recording or a re-release?:

    I think that it's a new recording; Spotify is listing it as a new release, and the track that is available sounds different from the old recording.

    Ras,

    They appear to be new, live recordings (of Beethoven's complete Cello Sonatas 1-5) from December 12, 2020, but I gather the concert-films (for Idagio, performed in the Global Concert Hall in three parts) were accompanied by discussions between Ma & Ax regarding the initial recordings they made of Beethoven's Cello Sonatas 1-5 at the outset of their careers, for CBS, which apparently marked the beginning of their long friendship, and how they view this music now, some 40 years later. But I've not seen the film myself, so I'm not certain that I've got all that exactly right:

    I hadn't realized that Chailly didn't record the 3rd for his DVD Mahler cycle in Leipzig, either. Yes, he did record it earlier as part of his Concertgebouw Amsterdam cycle for Decca, and the 3rd & 9th were the only two recordings from that cycle that were released on both CD and hybrid SACD. So, somebody thought very highly of them (either Decca, or Chailly...). Me too. I thought they were among the best performances from Chailly's Decca cycle. Perhaps, later in Leipzig, he felt that he couldn't do better in the 3rd, and didn't need to record it again? Since, from what I've heard, my impression has been that the Leipzig performances are for the most part rethought & reconsidered interpretations from what Chailly did in Amsterdam. The DVDs are also live performances, which adds a strong degree of excitement.

    Complete Decca Recordings
    Rafael Kubelík



    I may buy it for a good price since it has the Brahms Symphony Cycle and my favourite Ma Vlást.

    AND Complete Mercury Recordings

    Hope you don't mind a reply from a newcomer! Yes I have symphonies 2 and 3 from this box, and a few other recordings by the same orchestra. I am not enough of an expert to compare them to other versions, but to me they sound very good, as are the other SACDs conducted by Shui that I own. My version of the Symphony No. 3 disc also has the Rhapsody on a Theme pf Paganini with Sudbin on the piano (great!). Being recorded by BIS they are all excellent as far as sound goes, and I believe all SACD surround (that's at least true for the ones I have).

    I can also add a link to a review of the box from MusicWeb: http://www.musicweb-international.co...ys-BIS2512.htm

    If the JPC contents listing is complete then it will not be "Complete", since the 1982 Pelleas et Melisande is not shown.

    A continuing issue with UMG. Incomplete Complete editions.

    A terrible annoyance for me, the consumate Completist
