Product Description

Amazon.ca

Celibidache's mysticism and grand rhetorical style are suited to Bruckner's grandiose symphonies. These 1969-1981 performances of the "middle" symphonies are companions to another DG box of the late symphonies. Both sets compete with Celibidache's later versions with the superior Munich Philharmonic, recorded by EMI in more spacious, detailed sound. But Celibidache's many admirers will want both, for while the EMI set amply demonstrates the conductor's often wayward tempos and obsession with bringing out details others glide over, the earlier Celibidache on these discs is much more straightforward. His Munich performances stressed the ultimate in orchestral transparency and detail; these earlier ones are more flowing and strive for thicker orchestral sound and softer accents. But they still bear the Celibidache stamp--slower and grander than most Bruckner performances, if less idiosyncratic. DG offers an interesting filler with a straightforward account of Mozart's Haffner Symphony and a bonus rehearsal disc documenting Celibidache's perfectionist strivings. --Dan Davis

The DG cycle of Celibidache's Bruckner is a facinating one, and a relativly easy way into the sound world of Celibidache. Here you have the greatest conductor since maybe Mahler navigate the complex metaphysical romanticism of Bruckner with consumate ease. These CDs are a good preparation for the other-worldly deeply profound revalations of Celibidache's '80s, 90s concerts of Bruckner on EMI.

wild abandon in the scherzo of no.4 June 25 2005
By Helga.Hortensia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've obtained no.4 separate from the entire collection- where Celi conducts the Swedish Radio Symphony orchestra.

This performance contradicts the usual sterotypes assosciated with this great conductor.The Scherzo is taken at a frenetic pace.Surely,it has never been faster! The energy is irresistable and the other movements are done with a similar sense of verve and rhythmic energy.Herbert Von Karjian's EMI version is alarmingly tentative in the 2nd subject group of the ist movement where the celibidace has a rustic gait which ensures that the tension doesn't drop.
