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.

  1. Thanks for the wonderful LP. Fricsay’s German was good because, when he was born in Hungary, it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and, even though he was just four when the war ended and the empire collapsed, he was probably surrounded by German-speaking people during his formative years. He was also an Austrian citizen from 1960 through the time of his death.
