Sony to release the complete Dimitri Mitropoulos on CD!

Dimitri Mitropoulos (1896-1960) was a Greek conductor who came to America in the 1930s and made many recordings with the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Like Wilhelm Furtwangler of Arturo Toscanini, Mitropoulos' height of popularity came just before the advent of modern sound technology, so that many of Mitropoulos' finest recordings are marred by distortion and background noises that may make those recordings practically un-listenable to some classical music enthusiasts (although the new Sony Mitropoulos set has advertised that most of those very rough recordings have been "remastered") .

As with Toscanini, Mitropoulos was said to have had a photographic memory that was so incredible that he rehearsed and conducted without a score. As with Furtwangler, Mitropoulos had an approach to music that was very free and organic, at least to my ears. Mitropoulos also had a very eclectic choice of repertoire. Like Bruno Walter, Mitropoulos was a champion of Mahler long before Leonard Bernstein made it fashionable. Mitropoulos also championed the likes of many composers who were his contemporaries such as Schoenberg, Berg, Krenek, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Sam Barber, and Gunther Schuller. Mitropoulos was also a very fine pianist who recorded a handful of concertos by the likes of Bach, Prokofiev, and Krenek as both pianist and conductor long before Leonard Bernstein did it.

During the early 1980s and into the 1990s, and prior to the rise of the internet and online shopping; a Dimitri Mitropoulos record or CD was somewhat hard to come by in your local music store. Unlike the the recordings of Bruno Walter, George Szell, Leonard Bernstein, Eugene Ormandy, Arturo Toscanini, Charles Munch and others; Mitropoulos' recordings were for some reason not often featured as part of the numerous RCA or Columbia budget lines of reissues.

The Mitropoulos Sony set is now going for about $250 and is somewhat out of my budget so I'm only thinking about buying it at this point unless the price goes down.

What is you opinion of the music of Dimitri Mitropoulos along with favorite or notable recordings?

Metropolis is a major conductor and this box is most welcome especially if you look at the recordings in this box. I also think it is too expensive and will take a gamble if the price drops a few months after the initial release.

Excellent recording, and quite unique - flamboyant, molto espressivo - I remember the deliciously "quacky" 2ble reeds throughout.....really honking away to their heart's content!!

Well I just ordered it. Lordy, these boxes are taking over! Mitropoulos was one of the greatest of the 20th C, in Europe he was as highly ranked as Toscanini and Furtwangler. Over the years I've picked up many of his records, but to have the complete RCA and Columbia recordings is going to be fantastic. Regrettably, the sound quality in Minneapolis suffered - a lousy venue and a seeming lack of care by the producers. Maybe remastering will improve it; hope so. I'm so glad this is coming out; he was treated so shabbily by the musical establishment and he died way, way too young.

Looks like CD 26 will be the 1911 version of Petrushka with the NYPO

Even if it was cheap, there would not be enough music in there to interest me sufficiently. I have the Great conductors volume, the other Mahler 6 (NYPhil), the Oistrakh DSCH VC 1, the Salzburg Don Giovanni, Elektra, maybe another disc or two I forgot and I certainly wouldn't mind to have some of this box but not all these repertoire doublings in historic sound of pieces I don't care for. Certainly not for ~250 EUR.
