Zuzana Růžičkova (harpsichord)

Czech Philharmonic Orchestra & Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, Kurt Sanderling & Vaclav Neumann

Zuzana Růžičkova, an exceptional personality upon whom the critics conferred the title “First Lady of the Harpsichord”, continued the pioneering efforts Wanda Landowska had made to get the harpsichord recognised as an independent concert instrument. The path she took was co-determined by her lifelong relationship to Bach, whose complete works for harpsichord she has recorded, and along it she was also accompanied by a number of friends she regularly met: Karel Ančerl, Gideon Klein, Sviatoslav Richter, Josef Suk.

She hasn’t, however, remained merely a Bach specialist: in addition to early music, she has recorded all the classic modern harpsichord works, including Poulenc’s Concert champetre and her beloved Bohuslav Martinů’s Concerto for Harpsichord, awareness of which she helped to raise all over the world. A number of pieces have been written directly for Zuzana Růžičkova, among them compositions by Jan Rychlik and the remarkable Sei invenzioni canonici per cembalo by Viktor Kalabis, whom the harpsichordist was married to for over half a century.

This representative selection from Zuzana Růžičkova’s highly acclaimed discography is Supraphon’s way of marking her 80th birthday. The overwhelming majority of these recordings are appearing on CD for the very first time. The perfect way to mark Zuzana Růžičkova’s 80th birthday – a harpsichord feast ranging from Bach to the 20th century.

Kurt Sanderling conducts Mahler & Schumann

Kurt Sanderling conducts Mahler & Schumann

Royal Albert Hall, London, 29 July 1988


Mahler:

Das Lied von der Erde

Carolyn Watkinson & John Mitchinson

Schumann:

Symphony No. 4 in D minor, Op. 120


Some of the greatest conductors have worked with the BBC Philharmonic – Sanderling (b.1912), conducting here in 1987, knew the orchestra well having first conducted them some 13 years previously when they were known as the BBC Northern Symphony Orchestra.

Sanderling has had an illustrious career with orchestras such as the Leningrad Philharmonic, Berlin Symphony Orchestra, Dresden Staatskapelle and the Philharmonia, retiring only 9 years ago.

The BBC Legends recording of his Mahler 9 with the BBC Philharmonic from 1982 received excellent reviews.

John Mitchinson, often chosen for the tenor role in Das Lied von der Erde, performed the work many times with the BBC Philharmonic to great acclaim, with two BBC Legends recordings featured in the Penguin Guide – ‘his voice focuses ever more securely through the work with many cleanly ringing top notes’‘John Mitchinson is here at his finest, contrasting his firm, heroic tone in the first song against delicate half-tones, using his head-voice.’

Known for enjoying live performances and having an affinity for late Mahler, Sanderling’s reading of Das Lied von der Erde is inherently musical.

This is the first DVD release of this material.

“Sanderling's Schumann's Fourth Symphony is robust, his Mahler Lied von der Erde (Mitchinson and Watkinson in marvellous voice) strangely Olympian.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ****

“Sanderling makes it all seem relatively effortless, elevating Mahler to the proverbial Olympian heights with no visible means of support...[he] is blessed with singers highly compatible with his interpretation. The versatile tenor John Mitchinson soars comfortably even in the peice's highest registers, and mezzo-soprano Carolyn Watkinson - best known for singing Baroque repertory - brings to Mahler a comparable sense of musical and emotional transparency.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2012

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5 in D minor, Op. 47

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5 in D minor, Op. 47


Berliner Sinfonie-Orchester, Kurt Sanderling

One of the key symphonies by one of the most important composers of the 20th century – the Fifth Symphony of Dmitry Shostakovich is a symphonic masterpiece that is of undiminished relevance today. In its interpretation by Kurt Sanderling, it found a congenial realization whose validity was acknowledged by the composer himself.

Barbara Sanderling, BSO double-bassist from 1961 to 1986 and the conductor’s wife, notes that the Fifth Symphony was “part of his life” in a very special way. Kurt Sanderling had conducted the first revival of the work after the renewed “ostracism” (of Shostakovich’s music) of 1948. He conducted the BSO in the symphony for the first time in October 1961 and kept it in the repertory for over twenty years before the recording sessions documented here took place. Frau Sanderling remembers how her husband as principal conductor – drawing on the “bonus of age and experience given him by his life and career” – developed an unbelievable understanding of this music. It was providential that Shostakovich “expressly confirmed what Kurt Sanderling had read into the music”.
