Karl Böhm, directing one of his favorite orchestras, gives us a definitive reading of a work that he had championed for decades.
Franz Welser-Möst leads his Cleveland Orchestra forces in a superb rendering of Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony. Beautifully captured in HD with excellent sound, this Blu-ray Disc becomes my choice for this towering work.
Maestro Claudio Abbado leads a young, but superbly gifted group of musicians through two masterpieces by Mahler and Schoenberg. Every Abbado concert is an outstanding musical event and this one is no exception.
Riccardo Chailly continues his traversal of the Mahler symphonic repertory with this uplifting and sensitive account of the Symphony No.4. The Accentus recording team turns in another beautifully executed Blu-ray Disc.
Daniel Barenboim leads a powerful rendition of Bruckner’s popular Symphony No.4 from Berlin. A well recorded performance that delivers the full measure of romanticism.
This all-Mahler concert from the Lucerne Summer Festival, features the 5 Ruckert songs and Fourth Symphony. The expert orchestral leadership of Claudio Abbado coupled with the radiant vocalism of mezzo-soprano, Magdalena Kožená, make this a must-have concert Blu-Ray disc.
