With a deluxe four-disc set of newly remastered recordings we celebrate the unique, iconic art of Carlos Kleiber, who died on 13 July 2004. Without a doubt, Carlos Kleiber was the most charismatic conductor in the second half of the 20th century.

Exclusive to Deutsche Grammophon, he made few recordings of symphonic music – just one CD each of Beethoven (Fifth and Seventh Symphonies), Schubert (Third and “Unfinished” Symphonies) and Brahms (Fourth Symphony). These are among the greatest treasures of the DG catalogue. On CD alone, the Beethoven has sold over 600,000 copies since 1992 (and many more LPs and CDs before that).

Now, in commemoration of Kleiber’s death in 2004, we are offering a deluxe, limited-edition set (slipcase, hardcover book in the style of the Martha Argerich Lugano Concertos, 4779884), with newly remastered versions of these recordings at 24 bit / 96 kHz (CD 1 – Beethoven 5 & 7; CD 2 – Schubert 3 & 8; CD 3 – Brahms 4) .

Includes a BluRay Audio disc containing all the works AND a 70-minute audio documentary, tracing Kleiber’s career and his extraordinary ability to inspire the musicians he worked with. Contributors include Ileana Cotrubas, Felicity Lott, Dale Clevenger, Thomas Hampson, Clemens Hellsberg, Peter Jonas. With specially selected musical excerpts from Kleiber’s orchestral and opera recordings.

The 32-page booklet has a new article and timeline by journalist and author Jon Tolansky, who worked with Kleiber. The booklet also includes original covers and new rare photos of the conductor in the recording studio in Vienna, 1973 – moving documents of his passionate search for perfection. This set represents the best-ever version of these iconic recordings.

In addition to this deluxe set, early August will see the delicious release of a numbered, limited-edition 4-LP Set, every LP to be expertly re-mastered at Optimal from analogue sources (LP 1: Beethoven 5, LP 2: Beethoven 7; LP 3 Schubert 3 & 8; LP 4: Brahms 4). The pressings from Optimal will be on 180 gsm vinyl stock. Original LP front and back covers.

All seven of Schubert’s completed symphonies - plus the B minor fragment known as the ‘Unfinished’ - enjoy a popularity now which they haven‘t always had. Only the twentieth century gave these pieces the recognition they deserved and an appreciation of their true emotional depth.

All display his gift for pure and lovely melody, but there are great differences between the restraint of the earlier six symphonies and the last two, where he fully employed Romantic expression. His last symphony, the ‘Great’ C major Symphony, is both classic and romantic, combining the vitality of the classical period and the melancholy of his personality, the architecture of late 18th century classical music with an innovative and daring approach to structure, harmony and orchestration.

He mastered the symphonic form in his own way. This 4-CD set of the complete symphonies contains performances of symphony Nos 1- 4 by The Hanover Band, conducted by Roy Goodman. These are part of their acclaimed cycle, recorded in the warm acoustic of All Saints’ Church in Tooting, which was the first ever complete set of Schubert’s symphonies performed on historic instruments. Gramophone hailed the performances as ‘striking and exciting”, and “consistently bringing out the joy of the young Schubert’s inspiration.” Symphony Nos 5-6 and Nos 8-9 are performed with polish and vitality by the Camerata Salzburg, directed by the great Hungarian conductor and violinist, Sándor Végh.

Schubert: Symphonies Nos. 1-9 (Complete)


“incandescent atmosphere and magisterial playing” Classic FM Magazine, August 2011

“These are marvellous performances: vibrant, clear, characterful and effortlessly well played.
The recordings, too, still seem new-minted, even the Ninth, the first of the symphonies to be recorded. The Berliners' art is the art that disguises art. Böhm never feels the need to do anything clever but just quietly sees to it that this superb orchestra plays at its best. Böhm's way with the two late symphonies is, in fact, highly sophisticated. The Unfinished begins in what seems to be a leisurely fashion but his performance of the first movement catches Schubert's mix of lyricism and high drama with extraordinary acuity. Conversely, the second movement seems swift but brings the work full circle with an equally extraordinary sense of calm and catharsis in the final pages. The celebrated 1963 Ninth out-Furtwänglers Furtwängler in the myriad means it uses within a single grand design to capture the symphony's sense of danger and derring-do in addition to its lyricism, nobility, and earthy Austrian charm.
In the early symphonies, Böhm's approach is simpler-seeming and more direct. Rhythms are so finely propelled, the pulse so effortlessly sustained, the music always lands on its feet. The zest comes from the stylish Berlin string- playing; melodically, it's the woodwinds (every one a Lieder singer) who catch the beauty of Schubert's melodies and the skirl of the attendant descants. You won't find yourself tiring of Böhm's approach; he doesn't give in to irritating idiosyncrasies (à la Harnoncourt), but ensures that the Schubertian stream is always clear to the eye and sweet to the taste.”
