Bernard Haitink


This highly appealing collection of light-orchestral classics gathers up eighteen years in the history of one of the world’s most celebrated orchestras during the golden age of the LP.

Ever since its foundation in 1883, the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam has been blessed with a hall that, to all intents and purposes, belongs to them. Unlike many of their rivals, they not only perform but rehearse and record in the hall. The hall’s own superb acoustic has always been a further attraction for record companies, and between 1950 and 1968 microphones were frequently set up to record the orchestra.

Those microphones mostly belonged to Decca and to the fledgling local Philips company, and on the podium were not only its music directors – during this period, Eduard van Beinum and, from 1961, Bernard Haitink – but also celebrated guest conductors. There were long-established maestros and friends of the orchestra such as Eugen Jochum, Paul van Kempen and Willem van Otterloo, but also younger, dynamic maestros including Antal Doráti.

When recording sessions went well, and the main works were in the can ahead of schedule, the time was not wasted, but filled with shorter pieces. These would both conveniently fill out a short-measure LP and be guaranteed enticements to the ever-growing market of consumers, though in some cases, the reserve pieces were only released on a 45-rpm record, which sometimes disappeared from the catalogue after a short period.

Many of those recordings, often made on the hoof with a delightful spontaneity that shines through even now, are gathered on this set for the first time. Typical of them is The Stars and Stripes Forever. This was put on tape one day in September 1958 without rehearsal, played straight through, and at the end Van Beinum addressed the orchestra: ‘Now that, gentlemen, is a recording!’

Sometimes the juxtapositions of conductor and repertoire are immediately arresting: not only Van Beinum in Sousa but Haitink in Glinka and Verdi. The waltz-suites from Der Rosenkavalier play to Jochum’s under-rated strengths as an operatic conductor. Igor Markevitch conducts the Polovtsian Dances and Russian Easter Festival Overture to the manner born.

The booklet includes an informative and insightful note by Niek Nelissen, as well as cover illustrations of the LPs and EPs that gave rise to this unique collection.

Richard Strauss: Suites from Elektra & Rosenkavalier

Richard Strauss: Suites from Elektra & Rosenkavalier


Strauss, R:

Der Rosenkavalier - Suite

arr. Artur Rodzinski

Elektra: suite (conceptualized by Manfred Honeck)


SAN FRANCISCO: This new recording presents orchestral suites based on two of the most significant operas in history. Der Rosenkavalier found its place in the concert hall from the beginning, first with two waltz sequences and later with the famous 1944 suite. But Elektra remained purely on the opera stage until now. Conductor Manfred Honeck has made his own symphonic adaptation, in collaboration with the Czech composer Tomás˘ Ille.We proudly present these Strauss suites, new and old, in definitive interpretations from Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, in superb audiophile sound.

This release is the sixth in the highly acclaimed Pittsburgh Live! series of multi-channel hybrid SACD releases on the FRESH! series from Reference Recordings. Each has received dozens of critical accolades. Dvořák/Janáček (FR-710SACD) and Bruckner 4 (FR-713SACD) have each received GRAMMY® nominations for Best Orchestral Performance.

With a legacy of more than 120 years, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is known for its artistic excellence, a rich history of the world’s finest conductors and musicians, and a strong commitment to the Pittsburgh region and its citizens. Past music directors have included many of the greats, including Fritz Reiner (1938-1948), William Steinberg (1952-1976), Andre Previn (1976-1984), Lorin Maazel (1984-1996) and Mariss Jansons (1995-2004). This tradition of outstanding international music directors was furthered in fall 2008, when Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck became music director of the Pittsburgh Symphony The orchestra has been at the forefront of championing new American works, and gave the first performance of Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 1 “Jeremiah” in 1944, and John Adams’ “Short Ride in a Fast Machine” in 1986. The Pittsburgh Symphony also has an illustrious history in the areas of recordings and radio concerts dating back to the 1930s.

And, with a long and distinguished history of touring both domestically and overseas since 1900—including more than 37 international tours to Europe, the Far East and South America—the Pittsburgh Symphony continues to be critically acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest orchestras.

This release and the entire Pittsburgh Live! series are recorded and mastered by the team at Soundmirror, whose outstanding orchestral, solo, opera and chamber recordings have received more than 80 Grammy nominations.

“Manfred Honeck and his Pittsburgh players combine for a stunning album which should be an essential purchase for Strauss devotees.” MusicWeb International, 7th November 2016

“Honeck and his magnificent band provide an essential Elektra ‘supplement’ that henceforth will be part of my regular Strauss listening, especially as the sound is so spectacular. Magnifique!” Classical Ear, 8th November 2016

“This is juicy. I’m sure that many music lovers have wished that Strauss had made a suite from Elektra. It is, after all, one of his most exciting scores, as well as one of his most symphonically cogent. Well, here it is, courtesy of Manfred Honeck” Classics Today, December 2016

“A splendid showcase for Honeck’s Pittsburgh forces.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2017

“It’s all magnificently played, the slow-burn approach paying off when the Dionysiac release of Elektra’s death-dance finally bursts out of a leisurely peroration…great, terraced sound, too: a fine achievement” BBC Music Magazine, March 2017 ****

The program on this CD comprises three of Strauss’s best-known compositions, starting with the Rosenkavalier Suite then moving on to the colourful spectacle of Till Eulenspiegel all the way to the Four Last Songs. Here, Mariss Jansons brings one of the most celebrated sopranos of recent times together with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.

Audi Jugendchorakademie & Munich Opera Horns, Kent Nagano

Remarkably, there is little repertoire for choral ensembles and horns, even though the sound of the horn has a very close resemblance to that of the human voice. For the Munich Opera Horns, this was a great incentive to present these rarely played works to the public in an exemplary interpretation.

Featuring various combinations of voices and horns, the works tell of the joys and woes of hunting, romantic love, night-time in the woods, and Russian women who have devoted themselves to fortune-telling.

The singers and horn players on the recording give wonderfully vivid and highly impassioned performances of these many-faceted pieces.

The programme is rounded off by two works from the world of opera, arranged for ten-part horn ensemble. While the 'Good Friday Magic' arrangement adopts what Wagner wrote almost note for note, the 'Rosenkavalier Suite' is a skilfully and freely ordered series of passages from the opera Der Rosenkavalier that sometimes uses bridging passages composed by the arranger.

For Kent Nagano, musical education for young people is very close to his heart. A first one-off rehearsal with the Audi Young Persons‘ Choral Academy in 2010 led to a long-term and intensive collaboration. “The Audi Young Persons‘ Choral Academy is an investment in the future”, Kent Nagano says. “The young people have a wonderful passion for music, beautiful voices, and are really ready to work together.” Under Nagano's direction, the Audi Young Persons‘ Choral Academy gave concerts with top international orchestras at the Vorsprung Festival, first held in 2014.

The Munich Opera Horns also enjoy a continued artistic association with their former principal conductor. In his time as Bavarian General Music Director (2006-2013), Kent Nagano developed a very special working relationship with “his” horn section: “One of the most beautiful and striking experiences of my career as a conductor has been the encounter with the horn sound of the Bavarian State Orchestra”, Nagano says.

The two works for horn ensemble on this CD bear convincing witness to the kindred musical approach of conductor and ensemble.
