No tempo problems in these live Sept. 22 2013
By Jon Miller - Published on
performances from 1957. Klemperer recorded the Schubert 4th symphony twice-an earlier Vox #4 was part of one of his first lps.
He told his his daughter Lotte that it was "an indescribably beautiful piece"* and performed it fairly often. Tempi and phrasing are similar
to those in Eugen Jochum's unmatiched RCOA version excepting a slower but still relatively animated OK Andante. One senses
Klemperer's affection and regard for the symphony. As usual, wind playing in it and the other two works sounds perfect. Try
the third movement trio in the Schubert, the opening theme in the Brahms, and all of Till Eulenspiegel. The Brahms is one of the best that I have heard, and the Strauss xrays the score without losing momentum. As often was the case with Klemperer (e.g.
some live Testanents c.f. his EMI versions of the same works such as the Beethoven Symphonies 2 and 7 and Mozart #39), this concert
catches him close to his best.
