Then began for him a great international career that will take him around the world: in France of course, but everywhere in Europe, England, Germany , Austria, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Holland. He also plays in South America and North America (United States, Canada). He plays in recital, and with orchestra under the direction of the greatest conductors: Philippe Gaubert, Pierre Monteux, Eugene Bigot, André Cluytens, Pierre Dervaux, Richard Beck, Carl Schuricht … His repertoire is vast, from Bach to Dutilleux.

Mono HD-Vinyls 24/96 (DGG) Ferenc Fricsay – Rehearse & Performance of Smetana’s “Moldovia” from “Ma Vlast (My Fatherland)”


Wow, what an exciting experience, to “sit” on the shoulder of Maestro Fricsay during a rehearse of “Moldovia” by Smetana. I never espected, that his German was this marvellous. You probably never heard such a recording. A pity only for the non Germanophones among you! Enjoy it anyway! The entire A and first half of B side is basically just the conductor instructing (and correcting) the orchestra with partially very creative language. Second half of B is the piece “Moldovia” itself.

Composer: Bedric Smetana
Orchestra: Symphony Orchestra of the South-German Broadcast
Conductor:
Ferenc Fricsay
