Kempe’s final appearance at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (the scene of many triumphs for this great conductor) – a searing performance of incredible orchestral discipline and vocal drama, captured in fine sound. This is Richard Strauss conducting as its finest. Plus: Kempe in rehearsal with the Dresden Staatskapelle, a valuable insight into this conductor’s unique rehearsal methods.

MenuhinHomage to Yehudi Menuhin: his greatest concerto recordings
Brahms: Violin Concerto in D, Op. 77*; Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35**. Yehudi Menuhin, violin; *BBC Symphony Orchestra / Sir Adrian Boult (recording of broadcast of 5 April 1943); ** RIAS Symphony Orchestra, Berlin / Ferenc Fricsay (recording of broadcast of 22 August 1949)
Yehudi Menuhin’s historic 1943 BBC broadcast of the Brahms Violin Concerto with Boult conducting has been hailed by Tully Potter as ‘his best Brahms Concerto recording, and with the Enescu cadenza’. Here it is paired with his equally powerful account of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with Fricsay conducting, broadcast from Berlin in 1949.

StokowskiStokowski conducts Beethoven live, Vol. 4
Beethoven: Overture: The Creatures of Prometheus, Op. 43*; Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano in C major, Op. 56*†; Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 36**.
* American Symphony Orchestra; † Beaux Arts Trio (Menahem Pressler, piano; Isidore Cohen, violin; Bernard Greenhouse, cello); ** Chicago Symphony Orchestra / Leopold Stokowski (recordings of concert given on *14 January 1971, Carnegie Hall, New York (in house); and of ** the original unedited WGN-TV television broadcast of 7 October 1962)
Volume 4 in our projected ‘live’ Beethoven Symphony cycle conducted by the legendary Leopold Stokowski features live recordings of three works which he never recorded commercially and which in addition, because he conducted them infrequently, are the only extant Stokowski recordings of these pieces. An essential issue for admirers of this great musician.

AinsleeThe Sorcerer’s Apprentice: Homage to Ainslee Cox
Vaughan Williams: Sinfonia Antartica (Symphony No. 7)*; Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 5 ‘Reformation’**. * Jacqueline Pierce, mezzo-soprano; Women’s Chorus of the American Symphony Orchestra; American Symphony Orchestra / Ainslee Cox (recordings of concerts given at Carnegie Hall on *13 April 1970 and **11 April 1972).
Ainslee Cox (1936 – 1988) was Leopold Stokowski’s assistant for five years as well assistant conductor at the New York Philharmonic Orchestra with both Leonard Bernstein and Pierre Boulez. He led many notable concerts with Stokowski’s American Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, New York. This timely tribute to Cox includes the first New York performance of Vaughan Williams’ Sinfonia Antartica, a reading of great power, as well as a characterful interpretation of Mendelssohn’s Reformation Symphony.

Richard Strauss: Suite for 13 wind instruments (1883, stereo); Gounod: Symphony for 9 wind instruments (1885, mono); Richard Strauss: Symphony for 16 wind instruments (1945, mono). London Baroque Ensemble / Karl Haas
For the first time Karl Haas’s memorable interpretations of three masterpieces of late romantic wind music are brought together on a single CD.

SchwarzkopfElisabeth Schwarzkopf: live in recital: Buenos Aires, Vol. 2: 18 and 21 August 1968, with Geoffrey Parsons, piano
Arias and lieder by Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, Mahler and Brahms, plus numerous encores.
Elisabeth Schwarzkopf gave three recitals in Buenos Aires during 1968, of which these represent the second, complete, and the third, incomplete but substantial in content – in all over two hours of Schwarzkopf at her finest. Once again she displays her very considerable art in programmes that encompass almost the full range of her repertoire. Throughout she is expertly accompanied by Geoffrey Parsons and the recorded sound is excellent. Produced with the assistance of Walter Moore.

CKleiberarlos Kleiber conducts the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra: Live, 28 June 1994
Beethoven: Overture: Coriolan, Op. 62; Mozart: Symphony No. 33 in B flat major, K. 319; Brahms: Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98. Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra / Carlos Kleiber (recording of a concert given at the Philharmonie, Berlin, on 28 June 1994).
Listen, and weep at what might have been. Carlos Kleiber, despite many invitations, only conducted the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra on two occasions, of which this is the second. The combination of one of the world’s finest orchestras and Klieber at his most intense results in music-making of a calibre seldom equaled and never surpassed.
