Wiener Philharmoniker

Symphony No. 9 in C major, D944 'The Great'

London Symphony Orchestra


Born in Vienna in April 1902, the cheery-looking Josef Krips seems to have been pre-destined to achieve eminence in the Viennese classics. He recorded with both, the Wiener Philharmoniker and the key London orchestras for Decca in the 1940s, 50s and 60s and the interpretations have genuine expressive power while remaining devoid of exaggeration or affectation.

Two of Schubert’s best-loved and most-played symphonies are here coupled and both have been considered benchmarks in their recorded history. The Eighth with the Wiener Philharmoniker was Krips’s last recording for Decca. This issue forms part of a series of five reissues devoted to the art of Josef Krips.

Recording producers: Ray Minshull (Symphony No. 9); Christopher Raeburn (Symphony No. 8)

Recording engineers: Kenneth Wilkinson (Symphony No. 9); Colin Moorfoot (Symphony No. 8)

Recording locations: Kingsway Hall, London, May 1958 (Symphony No. 9); Sofiensaal, Vienna, Austria, March 1969 (Symphony No. 8)

“In the Unfinished, Krips treads a marvellously accurate line between flexibility and control. The Ninth is spacious in sound and interpretation, with sharp dynamic contrasts.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2011 ****

“This is a splendid Great C major; classical in conception and full of propulsive energy” Gramophone Magazine

“an unforced, flowing and wonderfully satisfying performance’ [Symphony No. 8] … the Ninth…has long being counted as one his very finest records, perhaps the finest … unforced spontaneity … The playing is polished, yet flexible, dramatically strong … this is a Schubert coupling to treasure” Penguin Guide

Schubert:

Symphony No. 5 in B flat major, D485

Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D759 'Unfinished'


During the 1950s, Karl Böhm made a handful of orchestral recordings for Decca with the Wiener Philharmoniker of music by, among others, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Weber. Reappearing here, for the first time on CD, internationally, are his swift recordings of Beethoven’s Eighth and of two Schubert symphonies (Nos. 5 and 8). Never imposing his will too strongly on his Viennese orchestra – and they had these classics in their blood – he directs performances that are fresh and gives full rein to the Vienna Philharmonic’s wonderful tonal resources. Add the acoustic of the Grosser Saal at the Musikverein, familiar as daily bread to all the participants, and you have the best kind of tradition.

Recording producer: Victor Olof

Recording engineer: Cyril Windebank

Recording location: Grosser Saal, Musikverein, Vienna, Austria, May 1953 (Beethoven), June 1954 (Schubert)
