It's sad that the "Great Conductors of the 20th Century" reissue series has not gotten more notice on Amazon and in other places, because it has my vote for the best reissue program thus far of the 21st Century. Drawing from the archives of all the major classical labels (EMI, Sony, BMG, DG, Decca, Philips, Supraphon, etc.), EMI and IMG Artists have assembled a wonderful series of affordable two-disc sets by the leading conductors of the last century. And unlike its counterpart, "The Great Pianists of the 20th Century," which are basically compilations of material already available on other CDs, the "Great Conductors" features rare and, for the most part, previously unreleased performances!
This particular CD, Volume 11, features the great Nicolai Malko, whose initial claim to fame was as the conductor who premiered Shostakovich's First Symphony. While the majority of the recordings presented in this 2CD set have been available before on disc, they have all been out of print for years. The gems on this set are the early stereo recordings with the Philharmonia Orchestra. Between Feburary 1955 and March 1956, Malko cranked out the Borodin 2nd, Prokofiev 7th, and Dvorak 9th Symphonies along with the Glinka, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky and Suppe pieces presented here, and many others not in this collection including the Borodin 3rd and Prokofiev 1st Symphonies. Walter Legge and the EMI folks sure kept Malko busy, but in many cases these recordings were being rushed to market in order to be the first stereo LPs of a particular composition. The set's only non-Philharmonia performances are Haydn's Symphony No. 92 from 1953 with the Royal Danish Orchestra, and the Nielsen "Maskarade" Overture from 1947 with the Danish State RSO.

Great Conductors of 20th Century = Best Reissues of the 21st May 26 2003
By Michael Brad Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD

The set's only non-Philharmonia performances are Haydn's Symphony No. 92 from 1953 with the Royal Danish Orchestra, and the Nielsen "Maskarade" Overture from 1947 with the Danish State RSO. They are solid renditions, but of course are recorded in mono and don't shine as brightly as the Philharmonia tracks.
Whether you are a serious collector of classical music or a beginner, the "Great Conductors of the 20th Century" has something for everyone. If the prized, rare performances previously unreleased on CD (or ever!) doesn't excite you, then use this as an opportunity to check out one of the greatest conductors ever recorded. Since stores are offering increasingly homogenized classical music sections, this conductor may not be in your collection, and that would truly be a shame.

The gem here is the Prokofiev Seventh Oct. 1 2005
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Prokofiev's composing career came to a sad end. Not only did he die on the same day as Stalin, therefore going unnoticed, but a few years previously he had sustained brain damage after taking a bad fall. His late works tend to be garrulous and lacking in inspiration, including his final symphony, the Seventh.

You'd never know it from Malko's recording, however, which features excellent sound, gorgeous, poised playing from the Philharmonia, and a wonderful sense of rhythm and phrasing from the conductor, who makes this score sound like an undiscovered ballet from Prokofiev's best period. This is the classic performance of the work, and one I am grateful to have after years out of the catalog. The other performances on this 2-CD mid-price set are fine but not exceptional.

Malko the musican June 11 2009
By Michael Woolley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In the Dvorak great conducting and playing leave the listener savouring the wonderful score. Nicolai Malko allowed the music he conducted to speak for itself.
