Strauss: Tone Poems
Strauss: Tone Poems (Decca 480 8948)
SKU: 16314
Price:
AU $13.59

  
Label: Decca Cat. No.: 480 8948 Medium: CD No. Discs: 2

This 2CD set brings together for the first time all of Lorin Maazel's Decca recordings of Strauss tone poems with the Vienna Philharmonic (he recorded Tod und Verklärung twice, the second time with the New Philharmonia Orchestra). All the recordings were made in Vienna's Sofiensaal, and star VPO principals were soloists in Don Quixote and Der Bürger als Edleman. To these 1960s recordings is added the 1983 recording of Macbeth that Maazel made for Deutsche Grammophon, thereby offering a trio of literary-inspired works: Don Quixote (Cervantes), Don Juan (Lenau) and Macbeth (Shakespeare). The release forms part of the continuing exploration of Maazel's Decca discography.

'[Maazel secures from the] splendid symphony orchestra a considerable quantity of splendid sound' Gramophone (Don Juan, Tod und Verklärung)

'served up with great gusto … with the utmost in Viennese affetuoso rubato … The orchestral playing has a superb gloss and is full of subtle shadings, and the dynamic range is very wide indeed.' Gramophone (Rosenkavalier Waltzes)

'Lorin Maazel gives a finely-paced account of Macbeth and draws sumptuous playing from the VPO … it goes without saying that the playing of the VPO is altogether glorious' Gramophone



Artists: Josef Star [viola], Emanuel Brabec [cello], Friedrich Gulda [piano], Willi Boskovsky [violin].
Composers: Richard Strauss.
Conductors: Lorin Maazel
Orchestras: Wiener Philharmoniker.
