Schubert:

Symphonies Nos. 1-9 (Complete)

Grand Duo Sonata in C major, D812

orch. Joseph Joachim

Rosamunde, D797: Overture


Abbado’s Schubert symphony-cycle is a benchmark recording — exhibiting a “freshness of approach and authentic Schubertian warmth and glow” (Gramophone).

Added bonus: Joseph Joachim’s great orchestration of the Grand Duo — originally for piano duet, now a virtual symphony in its own right.

“An outstanding set . . . naturally sunny and warm in expression” The Penguin Guide

“Abbado's is an outstanding set in every way. Rarely has he made recordings of the central Viennese classics which find him so naturally sunny and warm in his expression. The playing of the Chamber Orchestra Europe is both beautiful and deeply committed, consistently refined and elegant, but with ample power when necessity.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

Berliner Philharmonic Orchestra, Hans Knappertsbusch

Exclusive 5 CD hardcover box with Knappertsbusch’s signature in gold foil imprint.

This production is of high documentary value and definitely one of Audite's priority productions for 2010. During the early 1950s, before the Karajan era, the conductor Hans Knappertsbusch (1888-1965) worked intensively with the Berlin Philharmonic. The core-period of this cooperation from 1950 until 1952 in particular is documented by high-quality recordings made by RIAS Berlin, both of live concerts and of studio productions. For the first time, the original tapes from the RIAS archives have been made available, which means that these CDs offer the highest possible technical quality. This 5-CD set includes on the one hand a variety of symphonic works and on the other ‘light music’: two differing facets of Hans Knappertsbusch’s repertoire. The recordings of this edition convey a fascinating view on Knappertsbusch’s art. This comparison of live and studio recordings illustrates the influence of medium on Kna’s interpretational aesthetic: in concert, he takes greater liberties in tempi and dynamics than in the more objective studio location. This is also shown by the comparison of concert and studio recordings of Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony and Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony, two key-works in this edition. At the same time, the recordings disprove the one-sided view of Knappertsbusch as a master of slow tempi. Whereas he has a more expansive take on time in Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony, he tends to choose even more fluid tempi in his interpretations of the great Bruckner symphonies than Bruckner specialists such as Gunter Wand.

This 6-CD set celebrates the work of Sir Colin Davis (1927 – 2013) with the Staatskapelle Dresden for whom he was Conductor Laureate.

“Sir Colin was an incredibly kind and utterly unpretentious man who won the hearts of all who experienced him through his warmth of soul. A rarely encountered artistic bond existed between him and the Staatskapelle. For the Staatskapelle Dresden the death of Sir Colin signifies not only the death of their revered Conductor Laureate but the loss of a unique friend. We shall never forget him.” Christian Thielemann, Principal Conductor of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden

“Congratulations are in order to Profil for selecting these recordings so judiciously. The sound quality, although some audience noise can be heard on occasions, is excellent. A most worthy six disc collection of live recordings that pays homage to the memory of Sir Colin Davis with his cherished Staatskapelle Dresden.” MusicWeb International, 11th September 2013
