As a conductor, Sergiu Celibidache influenced as no other the musical life of Berlin, a metropolis still scarred by the war. The sound documents of this edition, most of which have not been previously released, for the first time paint a comprehensive picture of the conductor during the period between 1945 and 1957. These historic documents, providing new impressions of the legendary conductor, were revealed after intensive research.

Unlike in the elegiac, lyrical interpretations of Celibidache’s mature period, he also reveals a youthful, boisterous side in these recordings. However, his later development is already also perceptible, as for instance in the Chopin recording with Raoul Koczalsky. The conductor’s stamping and singing in the incomplete studio recording of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, on the other hand, clearly demonstrates his fiery and passionate temperament. This recording is added as a bonus disc.

This edition is exclusively based on certified sound documents, i.e. original tapes preserved today in the archives of Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (rbb) and the Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv Babelsberg (DRA). Fragments and tapes whose technical condition does not allow publication were not considered. Also not considered were non-licensed on-air copies from the grey market (as for instance Shostakovich’s Seventh Symphony). The booklet contains extensive editorial comments, including those concerning partially missing bars or movements on the original tapes.

“With detailed notes and sound that is often exceptional for its age, this is a model of how important historical set should be presented.” International Record Review, November 2013

“Crucially, the re-masterings have been very well handled by Ludger Böckenhoff...This is a set of great importance.” MusicWeb International, 13th February 2014

To the present-day listener one of the most notable aspects of European concert music in the 19th century is the degree to which it became far less the preserve of the Church and the ruling classes. Many composers working in the early years of the century, Beethoven among them, were, to a lesser or greater extent, still working as employees of the Church or the wealthy aristocratic classes. This system of patronage was soon to break down and the role of the composer took on a more professional and academic character. The new-found freedom, and the advent of Romanticism in the arts as a whole, revitalised music throughout Europe; composers began to experiment with new forms, making their music more personal and innovative. This change of musical climate is clearly illustrated in this 17-CD set made up of works from most of the great composers of the time.
