HD Vinyl 96/24 (Decca) Richard Strauss – Alpine Symphony (Solti)

front-small-boxsetReposted – now with FF links
George Solti had a long and illustrious tenure with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and many of his recordings were definitive. For example his Mahler’s and Beethoven’s Symphonies are ranked by many including me as some of the very best ever recorded. Some critics have faulted Solti’s interpretation of this work for its headlong tempos. They do take some getting used to if your paradigm is Karajan or Kempe; but if you have sometimes found this work rather long-winded, a quick sprint to the summit and back may prove more enjoyable than a moderate trudge. Solti lingers enough to evoke atmosphere, even if he’s more interested in conveying the evanescent dramatic tensions that course through this work. The more I hear it, the more I like Solti’s approach, though I realize that it might not be for everyone. If you’ve never heard the work before, rest assured that there is never a dull moment in Solti’s version.

  1. Rachmaninov, I´ve been following up all your uploads, and your work is just a bless. The quality of the recordings is just astonishing. Thank you so much my friend for your efforts, I´m aware that the process of digitalysing takes a lot of effort and time and you still do it and share your work with everyone. From the deepest corner of my heart a big thank you and I encourage to carry on to make the world happier. Big hug from Spain 🙂

    1. Gracias amigo, yo soy muy feliz por tu palabras… 🙂 Hope it is correct. Fortunately i have the luck to have so much to do with music, daily, to have to do with digitalisation… it is part of my daily work, so i spend heartly the time to give music to all music friends in the world.

      Have a good year !

    2. It is nearly two years later from when Raul wrote from Espana. I lost this digitalization of yours on an external hard drive which “gave up the ghost” and died.
      I not only agree with Raul, but am so glad you re-upped it so I may have it again.
      But you know my trust in you and my sentiments about your work!
      Deeply grateful;
      Bob

  2. Many thanks for re-posting as I missed this before. Have just finished listening on this very dull and damp day in Scotland and it has brightened my day. I am very grateful for all you share.

  3. should anyone any time around re-write what (among lots of others):
