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.
