Swiss Festival Orchestra, Paul Kletzki

A rediscovery of a master: a leading podium star during his lifetime, Paul Kletzki, born Pawel Klecki in the Polish city of Łódź on 21 March 1900, nowadays is considered an insider’s tip among connoisseurs.

Volume 9 in the Lucerne Festival Historic Performances series presents a live recording from the summer of 1946 as a first release. It shows Kletzki at the height of his art: on the podium of the Swiss Festival Orchestra he realises exciting interpretations of Brahms’s Fourth Symphony, Schubert’s Unfinished and Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No.3 – expressive and with a stupendous sense of musical architecture.

Paul Kletzki fled as many as three totalitarian regimes – initially Nazi Germany, where he had established himself as a composer and conductor since the 1920s, and where Wilhelm Furtwängler had championed him; later on, Stalin’s Soviet Union; and finally fascist Italy – before settling in Switzerland in 1939. Here, he became a regular guest at the Internationale Musikfestwochen Luzern, today’s Lucerne Festival, and began his international career which led him to work with all the important orchestras, whilst he also became chief conductor of the symphony orchestras at Liverpool, Dallas, Bern, as well (as Ernest Ansermet’s successor) as the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.

This live recording documents a charity concert which Kletzki conducted following studio recordings made in Lucerne for EMI: the first ever recording made by a Swiss orchestra for the international record market. The Neue Zürcher Zeitung wrote about Kletzki’s performance that the “works […] were interpreted with a brilliant perfection of intellectual excitement and spiritual fulfilment as it is to be experienced only extremely rarely”. This live recording from 1946 is one of the oldest recordings in the Audite catalogue. It is based on the original recording which was made using acetate discs, each with a duration of about 4 minutes. Despite their old age and the particular technical challenges presented by the remastering process, Kletzki’s impressive dynamics have been fully preserved. In cooperation with Audite, Lucerne Festival presents outstanding concert recordings of artists who have shaped the festival throughout its history.

The aim of this CD edition is to rediscover treasures – most of which have not been released previously – from the first six decades of the festival, which was founded in 1938 with a special gala concert conducted by Arturo Toscanini. These recordings have been made available by the archives of SRF Swiss Radio and Television, which has broadcast the Lucerne concerts from the outset. Carefully remastered and supplemented with photos and materials from the Lucerne Festival archive, they represent a sonic history of the festival.

Philippe Jordan has already established himself as one of the most gifted and exciting conductors of his generation. At present, he is Music Director of the Opéra National de Paris and Music Director of the Wiener Symphoniker.

The Wiener Symphoniker handles the lion’s share of symphonic activity that makes up the musical life of the Austrian capital. The preservation of the traditional, Viennese orchestral sound occupies a central place in the orchestra’s various artistic pursuits.

“Jordan, who's often tended to apply a late-Romantic conducting approach to earlier works, enriches with just that extra degree in these always engaging, sometimes challenging performances…[he] finds exactly the conflict in the progress of the night-watch march of the Ninth's second movement” BBC Music Magazine, December 2015 *****

“Jordan steers the music along with a lightly sprung tread.” Financial Times, 18th September 2015

“The performance of the first movement of the Unfinished is decidedly old-school (I use the term as a compliment). An emotionally articulate reading, it creates the space needed to explore the music's tragic dimension, yet at the same time retains a strong sense of forward motion.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2015

complete performing edition


Goldstone & Clemmow (4 hands at 1 piano)

With over forty CDs to their credit and a busy concert schedule stretching back more than thirty years, the British piano duo of Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow is firmly established as a leading force. Their recordings are not only brilliant performances but usually innovatively programmed, leading to rave reviews for every album.

Here we have two major world premieres: the first recording of the piano duet transcription by lieder-writer Robert Franz of the ‘Death and the Maiden’ Quartet, and a work which has many critics already lining up to hear it – the first recording of the ‘Unfinished’ Symphony in full four-movement performing edition for piano duet, including arrangements by Anselm Hüttenbrenner (Schubert’s friend), Anthony Goldstone, and Friedrich Hermann. It includes a completion of Schubert’s part finished Scherzo and the Rosamunde Entr’acte, widely believed to have been intended as the finale.
