    Listening to Beethoven symphonies from the recent Furtwängler wartime box set:



    Astounding. The recordings themselves, the performances, the atmosphere. And equally astounding that I can just look something like this up on Spotify and press play

    Having said that, I'm aware that the sense of occasion is probably nowhere near that of having the actual box set with the book and everything. But oh, well!

    I was at the semi-staged performance at the Royal Festival Hall in 1988. I can remember very little about it except that it was a very long evening.

    Frederick Delius: Brigg Fair: An English Rhapsody. Thomas Beecham, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I just got this at the record store yesterday, for cheap. It's my first recording of anything by the legendary conductor Beecham. So far, so good. His Royal Philharmonic has a rich, full sound with great strings. The recorded sound is excellent, late '50s stereo. Beecham is able to make the music sound very important, dare I say less "quintessentially English" and more universal. Far from what I was expecting!
    Beecham, for many year, seemed to be Delius's only champion and recorded quite a large body of his works. This set is treasurable for also being in such good stereo sound.

    It's a good central recommendation, but I'd also want one of the more HIP versions out there. I particularly like Christie's recording, but Blochwitz, good though he is, doesn't erase memories of Wunderlich, but then nobody does.
