Sibelius: Symphony No. 5
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
Leonard Bernstein, cond.
DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON


I've come to really love this expansive and expressive (often outré) rendition of the popular Fifth. I can't say as I'm crazy about Lenny's Vienna Second, however - a bloated, belching affair I find hard to digest.

Bruckner's fourth: Abbado/Lucerne Festival Orchestra

Image

I'd perhaps put this just slightly below Abbado's earlier VPO recording of the fourth, but this is still an outstanding performance.

Nino Rota never got no respect for his "serious" music. Some said that these piano concertos sound like Italian cinema music, not a bad thing I would say. Uncomplicated, tuneful, likeable they are certainly worth a listening.
I know far more pretentious qand uninspired 20th century music that is nowhere as good.

nos 29-36, as I contemplate purchase of Mackerras's recently released recording with the SCO. These are still uniformly delightful, as good as I've heard for non HIPI performances.
"Most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives." ~Leo Tolstoy

"It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character." ~Dale Turner

From the "Ormandy in Russia" series of live performances from the Philadelphia Orchestra's 1958 tour of the Soviet Union, I listened to Shostakovich's 5th symphony, the Ravel orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition, and Barber's Adagio for Strings.

BRUCKNER: Symphony n. 5 / Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Volkmar Andreae (1953)

A superb version, with a remarkable cohesion in special in the first and 4th movements.
To me, this is one of the greatest interpretations of the work, with Furtwängler (Berlin, 1942) and Jochum (Concertgebow, 1964).

Andreae uses a fast tempo, similar to Furtwängler (68' against the 75' of Jochum), in a very dramatic perspective. The first movement is perhaps the best I have heard.
Pity that the orchestra is not at the level of the Concertgebow, the BPO or the VPO.

Beethoven: Piano Concertos
Maurizio Pollini, piano
Vienna Philharmonic, Eugen Jochum (1 & 2), Karl Bohm (3-5) conducting

As for the rest of the concertos in this set, I don't understand why they opted to include the Karajan/Mutter Violin Concerto and Karajan/Mutter/Ma/Zeltzer Triple Concerto over the far superior Schneiderhan/Jochum VC and Fricsay/Anda/Schneiderhan/Fournier Triple. Damned marketing "geniuses" :twisted:

I bought that set as well. I purchased it specifically because it contains some hard to find rarities like Piano Concerto No. 0 , the Violin Concerto performed as a Piano Concerto, and other miscellaneous pieces. Overall it was worth the price. :)
