Beethoven, Bruno Walter ‎– Symphony No. 6 In F Major, Op. 68 (Pastorale) {Analogue Productions; 2LP, 45rpm, 200g, Remaster; 24-96} + 16-44

Bruno Walter helped shape the very essence of interpretive style among conductors. Walter’s rendition of Beethoven’s sixth symphony is perhaps the greatest ever recorded — his reading of the score comes off sounding like a piece of literature or poetry, but that is a great thing and perfectly blends with the music to create a benchmark recording.

Written in 1808, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 in F Major (“Pastoral”), Op. 68, is deemed one of the most influential by the famed composer. Unlike the vast majority of assumed names by which his works have become known, Beethoven directed from the very outset that his sixth symphony be titled “Pastoral Symphony,” or a recollection of country life. It was a musical approach to the forces of nature that inspired Beethoven.

Borodin, Rimski Korsakoff – Symphony No.2 In B Minor, Cappricio, Espagnole, Tsar Saltan (1959) {Analogue Productions; Remastered, Ltd, 200g; 24-96} + 16-44

This is a happy marriage between conductor and orchestra in the second symphony by Borodin. The orchestra was bristling with talent such as Gervase de Peyer on clarinet and Barry Tuckwell on horn and Hugh Maguire the leader of the London Symphony Orchestra until 59′ on Violin. The sound is very direct but the orchestra stands up very well to this. Martinon’s interpretation is refreshing and very up-beat.
