front-small-boxset
Many thanks to our friend Lemarquis for this record
Great performance of the 94th & 99th by VPO and Krips. Excellent sound and playing, especially from the winds in the 99th. The tempi are perfect.
Josef Krips (1902-1973) was a distinguished conductor of his era, but never held any of the major conducting posts, although e was music director of the London Symphony 1950-1954 and from 1963-1970 led the Buffalo Philharmonic. Krips appeared often at the Metropolitan opera. His recordings include the Beethoven symphonies with the LSO for Everest, the Beethoven piano concertos with Arthur Rubinstein for RCA. Krips also recorded many Mozart symphonies, Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 and Dvorák’s Serenade for Strings with the Concertgebouw. This new set offers four Haydn symphonies, Schubert’s Symphony 6 and Mendelssohn’s Italian, made with the Vienna Philharmonic and LSO 1948-1957.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca) Richard Strauss – Die Frau Ohne Schatten (Böhm)

front-small-boxsetThis pearl is brought to you by Jean-Luc
Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal began their collaboration on Die Frau ohne Schatten (The Woman Without a Shadow) with utopian ambitions. Unfortunately they weren’t the same ones. For Hofmannsthal, this would finally be the opera where his poetry would be illuminated by rather than buried under the music. For Strauss, this was to be his magnum opus, the self-proclaimed “last Romantic opera” that would cement his place in musical history. The gargantuan work that finally emerged after World War I for a 1919 premiere didn’t end up being quite what they expected, and was lengthy and demanding enormous orchestral and vocal force, even by Straussian standards…..
