Image Die Walküre, Act 1
Nina Stemme (Sieglinde), Johan Botha (Siegmund) & Ain Anger (Hunding)

Orchester der Wiener Staatsoper / Franz Welser-Möst

In Richard Wagner’s 'Ring of the Nibelung', the first act of 'Die Walküre' takes up a special place. The love-triangle of the twins Siegmund and Sieglinde and the ominous Hunding stands out in the context of this tetralogy because it possesses its own dramatic tension and self-enclosed trajectory within what is otherwise such a complex ...

Nicolai Gedda, tenor
Erik Werba, piano

At his first Salzburg recital on 18th August 1959, the legendary Swedish tenor Nicolai Gedda, accompanied by Erik Werba, triumphed in front of an enthusiastic audience. He endeared himself with his fluent command of four languages and with singing that was radiant in every register. The varied programme brought together compositions from Falconieri to Respighi and from Glinka to Shostakovich.

GRAMOPHONE - Re-issue of the Month, October 2014
Live Recording, Vienna State Opera December 16, 1965

“[Nilsson] is achingly tender in the recognition scene with Orestes, vividly obsequious as she lures Aegisthus to his death and tireless in her final, fatal dance...like Nilsson, [Resnik] really acts with her voice...[Windgassen] makes a forthright Aegisthus...The conducting is beyond praise.” (Gramophone)

Choir & Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera / Francesco Molinari-Pradelli

They made a distinctly odd couple onstage: she was the supreme hochdramatisch soprano of her generation, a singer able to maintain her tremendous vocal powers over a period of several decades, whereas he could captivate his listeners as a poetic and spirited lyric tenor so prodigal with his resources that within little more than a decade he had burned out. It was in 1961 that Birgit Nilsson appeared alongside Giuseppe di Stefano in a performance of Puccini's Turandot which, caught on the wing by by the microphones of Austrian Radio, manages not to be simply a duel between two vocal gymnasts anxious to display their top notes. As Calaf, Giuseppe di Stefano, who died on 3rd March at the age of 86, genuinely gives the impression that he is able to melt the Ice Princess with his mellifluous tenor and ingratiating timbre. Especially towards the end of her killer role, Nilsson shows that she has at her disposal the soft notes and subtle nuances needed to effect this change to a sense of greater humanity. This exceptional cast is completed by Leontyne Price as Liù. Rarely in the history of opera before or since have three such distinguished singers appeared together onstage. This new production of Turandot was conducted by Francesco Molinari-Pradelli, at that time one of the most sought-after conductors of the Italian repertory.

Image Der Ring des Nibelungen (13 CD)
Richard Wagner’s Ring was performed in the highly reduced version by Wieland Wagner at the eight Bayreuth festivals since the re-opening of the theatre in 1951. However, by 1960 it seemed that the time had come for a new production, a task placed in the hands of Wieland’s brother Wolfgang, whilst direction of the production was given to the then 48-year-old conductor Rudolf Kempe. The reaction to the refreshingly new musical portrayal of the Bayreuth debutant from Saxony was unanimously positive and remained so for the five years that Kempe conducted the orchestra; indeed, the impression was retrospectively reinforced (one critic many years later compiled a now famous, comprehensive and comparative discography, citing a recording of Kempe’s Bayreuth Ring as the best recording ever). Originally trained as an oboist, the Dresden-born Kempe began conducting in the 1930s and after the war became director of the Dresden, and then of the Bavarian state opera companies. In the course of the 1950s he enjoyed great success as a guest conductor at London’s Covent Garden (including Wagner’s Ring), and in 1961, the second year he conducted the Ring in Bayreuth, he assumed direction of the Royal Philharmonic. This recording, available for the first time, has been remastered from the original tapes of the Bavarian Broadcasting Company. What makes this release so unique is its cast, many of whom can be heard giving their debut’s in Bayreuth.

“If you are a connoisseur of Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony...then this reissue is imperative. There is a caveat: the recording has been saved from an audio cassette version, the original master having deteriorated. But that tape recording itself is of decent quality and has been well restored...It is a meticulous, exciting interpretation, with sensational playing from the great Bavarian band. The sheer weight in the brief but volcanic storm is like no other version.”

New York Philharmonic / Leonard Bernstein

In 1959, the last season before the opening of the new ‘Great’ Festspielhaus – Leonard Bernstein came as a guest with the New York Philharmonic, of which he was chief conductor. Thus one of the most impressive musical personalities of the age arrived together with one of the American orchestras richest in tradition. Bernstein’s own work The Age of Anxiety, his Second Symphony for Piano and Orchestra (with Seymour Lipkin as piano soloist, negotiating agilely a musical language that ranged from Romanticism to jazz), impressed the public as much as did Dmitri Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, in which Bernstein realised brilliantly its grandiose climaxes and plumbed its musical depths.

Besides Brahms's Violin Concerto, she here offers his Hungarian Dances in the version for violin and piano made by Joseph Joachim. The long-standing musical partnership of Brahms and Joachim is reflected doubly here, for Joachim was also the dedicatee of the Concerto ...

On their new CD the Latvian Skride sisters yet more composers from their extended Baltic homeland region (allowing that they include Norwegian Edvard Grieg). The uniting thread of the works on this CD is “finding one’s own sound”, something which each of the featured composers first had to find, and an element that the sisters effortlessly achieve as performers. All four composers on this recording share a close link with the violin.

Brahms's Concerto for Cello, written in 1887, was what brought our two musicians together on the concert platform for the first time. Both artists with this release to represent a record of their work together as a duo over the past ten years and more. Julia Fischer and Daniel Müller-Schott prove their talent, accentuating the infectious vigor of pieces throughout the album and supporting each other musically as well.

Image Cello Suites Nos. 1-3
Daniel Müller-Schott, cello

To be the dedicatee of a work by Benjamin Britten was a much coveted honour among 20th-century classical musicians. And for an artist to be the dedicatee of a whole series of works, then the musician in question – unless he happened to be Peter Pears – must have felt exceptionally blessed.

Britten’s three Cello Suites are an example of such an exception. They were written over a period of barely a decade for Mstislav Rostropovich, and it was he who gave them their first performances. They are generally regarded as three of the greatest and finest challenges ever to be set a cellist. Daniel Müller-Schott, who had an opportunity to study with Rostropovich, faces up to this challenge with great enthusiasm and superior musicianship.

The First Suite contains stylistic and formal reminiscences of the Baroque, and Daniel Müller-Schott brings to it great nobility of tone, just as he refuses to be discouraged from striking a note of genuine emotion in the Canto passages. That his artistry is also underpinned by astute analytical skills is clear from the rigour that he brings to the part-writing in the fugue and concluding Moto perpetuo. This ability to maintain an overview of a piece also pays dividends in the Second Suite, with its rhythmically and thematically carefully balanced design, including the final Chaconne – a form whose climactic possibilities Britten had already exploited to supreme effect when writing for the full orchestra in his opera Peter Grimes. In the final movement of the Second Cello Suite the composer had no hesitation in placing similar demands on a single instrument. It is almost a foregone conclusion that a performer capable of rising to this not inconsiderable challenge will also shine in the third and last of these suites. At the time of its first performance in 1974, Britten was already too ill to fulfil his promise to write six such suites. Daniel Müller-Schott captures the work’s valedictory character, with its reminiscences of Russian folksongs and the Hymn to the Departed, bringing a keen eye for detail to the writing and not only pin-pointing all its musical beauties but revealing the ways in which those beauties are refracted through the composer’s elegiac lens. Rarely can 20th-century works have been so atmospherically interpreted.

“This is an unusual and wholly absorbing recital by a soprano often, mistakenly, considered no more than a singer with a lovely voice. In 1972, at the height of her appreciable powers, Janowitz impressed her Salzburg audience with this, her first recital at the Festival. Her discerning choice comprises some notable songs by Schubert rarely heard in recital and ones by his contemporary Hüttenbrenner, which Janowitz sang from manuscript copies, seldom performed since the composer's day. These are surely their first recordings. Has there ever been such a lovely, poised account of the great Schiller-inspired song, DieGötter Griechenlands or such an ingratiating one of Sehnsucht, the Mayrhofer setting? The first offering, Im Freien, has its winning cantilena filled with gloriously sustained, long-breathed tone. The programme ends with Einsamkeit. This grandly imaginative if slightly impersonal quasi-cantata, to a Mayrhofer text, a composition that Schubert himself thought so highly of, is a kind of a panorama of a life, ending in a wonderfully reposeful final section. Janowitz and her impressive partner perform it with total conviction, sustaining interest throughout. Although not in Schubert's class – who is? – Hüttenbrenner reveals a talent apparently well able to encompass the meaning of poems in fluent and often imaginative writing. Orfeo provide no texts, let alone translations, but the delightful Spinnerlied must be about spinning: it's an artlessly charming song. Der Hügel is obviously about more serious matters, and in its sad course comes closes to Schubert in depth of feeling. Frühlingsliedchen has a simple, spring-like joy to it, and an appealingly varied, strophic form. Janowitz takes the measure of them all, and adds to a gently vibrant tone many tints and touches of half-voice. They could not have a better advocate. The recording catches the full glow of the singer's voice. The only drawback, that absence of texts, isn't serious enough to stop acquiring this issue, given that Janowitz virtually tells you in her utterance what the songs are about.”

“The Serenata notturna lifts off the page, the opening March pert and bouncy with just a hint of rubato. Végh's Camerata Academica liberate the inherent colour of Mendelssohn's C major String Symphony: the Andante's solo playing rapturously beautiful, the Scherzo's busy-ness delivered with panache. The opening Moderato of Dvorák's String Serenade is glowing and transparent (the coda as poetic as any I've heard), the Tempo di valse unusually earnest. The closing Wolf Italian Serenade... has the feel of genuine chamber music. It concludes a superb, well recorded and more-ish memento of an inspired musical partnership.”

“We hear him first, fresh-voiced and magnificent in even-toned sonority as Fiesco in his prologue to Simon Boccanegra. Then comes the complete triumph in one of his great roles, the King in Don Carlos: aristocratic in vocal method as in emotional restraint. His was the most beautiful of bass voices heard (in my experience) since the Second World War. ...the magnificence is unmistakable, and is more persuasively exhibited here, I would say, than any of his other collections on disc.”

No singer at the Vienna State Opera or elsewhere has been as closely associated with the title role in Strauss's Arabella as Lisa Della Casa, who celebrates her 90th birthday on 2 February 2009, and yet we should be guilty of doing the Swiss soprano a grave disservice by reducing her repertory to this one role alone.This point is well illustrated by an impressive portrait of the singer that is released as part of ORFEO's series 'Wiener Staatsoper live'. Lisa Della Casa took part in the opening performances in the rebuilt house in 1955, a bundle of nervous energy as Donna Anna under Karl Böhm, with Anton Dermota as Don Ottavio.With the silvery gleam of her soprano and her crystalline high notes, she was also a natural choice as Eva in Die Meistersinger, a role she also sang at Bayreuth and the Met. Here she demonstrates that she was capable of raising standards to those worthy of an international festival whenever she appeared with other world-class singers.The same is true of the closing scene from Capriccio under Georges Prêtre and of the scene from Arabella in which her sister, Zdenka, is played by Anneliese Rothenberger in an inspired piece of casting. As Lucile in Gottfried von Einem's Dantons Tod, under Josef Krips in 1967, she proved a worthy successor to Maria Cebotari, who at the start of Della Casa's career had recommended her younger colleague for more challenging roles.Von Einem's opera by no means marked a new direction in the singer's career: far from taking on character roles in the later stages of her career, she was still singing lyric soprano roles until shortly before she retired from the stage. A unique voice, with distinctive simplicity and even phrasing.

Friedrich Gulda, piano
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra / Karl Böhm

Among the countless concerts that Karl Böhm conducted with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra at the Salzburg Festival were not only a number of inevitable repeats of standard works from the mainstream symphonic repertory but also a number of surprises and genuine trouvailles. One such concert occurred in 1957, when Böhm joined forces with a young firebrand to perform a rarely heard early work by Richard Strauss, who at the time of its composition was widely regarded as a member of the avant-garde. Returning to Salzburg for the first time since his Festival début six years earlier, Friedrich Gulda performed the Burleske in D minor, once described by Hans von Bülow as "inhumanly difficult".When von Bülow declined to give its first performance, that honour fell to Eugen d'Albert. For Gulda, there was no knuckle-breaking cascade of notes, no insane accelerando or dynamic outburst that was so "inhuman" that it could not be placed in a meaningful and thrilling musical context with the help of Böhm and the Vienna Philharmonic.The result is a rewarding re-encounter firmly with the 'Romantic' tradition.

Among the many artists who returned to Europe after the Second World War and chose the Salzburg Festival as the place to resume their European careers was the violinist Zino Francescatti. In 1958 he returned to Salzburg to perform Brahms's Violin Concerto under Mitropoulos (Orfeo C534001B) and to give a recital with the pianist Eugenio Bagnoli as his accompanist.As was to be expected, the programme was extremely virtuosic, but it also placed the most varied stylistic demands on both its performers, encompassing, as it did, three centuries of music.Two encores rounded off the evening, Francescatti's own arrangement for piano and violin of Chopin's Mazurka Op. 68 No. 4 and Sarasate's Zapatera. This recording from the Salzburg archives provides us with an impressive cross-section of the wide-ranging repertory of this important violinist.

“The Concerto funebre (1939, rev 1959) has fared better on disc than any other Hartmann work… Its powerful inner message of grief and protest at then encroachment of tyranny across Europe… gives it an immediacy that is compelling… Schneiderhan was one of the first violinists to take it up after the war and this 1973 archival account is utterly gripping. Maria Bergmann's connection to the Piano Concerto (1953) is closer still as she premiered the work... Bergmann's pianism shows total commitment, matched by Kubelík's inch-perfect accompaniment. Kubelík is at his best, however, in the Symphonic Hymns (1941-42). Scored for large orchestra, this is the nearest Hartmann came to a sinfonietta with a roof-raising climax that sounds tremendous in this, its belated 1975 premiere.”

The Norwegian soprano Ingrid Bjoner, who died in 2006, appeared at the Bavarian State Opera's first performance at the rebuilt Nationaltheater in 1963 as the Empress in Die Frau ohne Schatten, enthusiastically received by the first-night audience and later by record collectors. At these performances, as also for her first Isolde, her conductor was Joseph Keilberth, but it was under Keilberth's successor in Munich, Wolfgang Sawallisch, that Ingrid Bjoner's career blossomed during the 1970s, as ORFEO's new portrait attests. By now her voice had matured, allowing her to take on the hochdramatisch repertory illustrated here by her Fidelio Leonore and her Götterdämmerung Brünnhilde. She is also heard in Act Three of Siegfried with the American tenor Jean Cox, who often appeared alongside her. Bjoner was also acclaimed as a Verdi soprano, especially in Munich. In 1974 she shared the role of Leonora with Julia Varady, no less, in a new production of La forza del destino under Eliahu Inbal, an excerpt from which is likewise included. Four years earlier she had sung Amelia in Un ballo in maschera - heard here in the original Italian under Leopold Hager - and had shown that she had no need to fear the demands of her second-act aria, for her voice had retained its enviable flexibility. ORFEO's portrait constitutes an altogether rewarding re-encounter with an outstanding singer inadequately represented in the catalogue.

The Leningrad Philharmonic gave two concerts under its principal conductor, Evgeny Mravinsky at the Vienna Festival in 1956, but it was the soloist who received more attention than either Mravinsky himself or his orchestra. David Oistrakh, one of the most distinguished instrumentalists of his generation, not only as a concert violinist but also as a chamber musician, was returning as one of the world's leading virtuosos, his appearances followed by public and press alike, unanimous in their acclaim. His performance of Mozart's A major concerto was as brilliant and as perfectly shaped as his playing of Shostakovich's First, a work dedicated to him, his performance of the cadenza providing a dazzling transition to the final movement, which caused a sensation wherever he played it. Particularly noteworthy about this Vienna performance is the fact that it reunites the forces involved in the world première in 1955, namely, Oistrakh and the Leningrad Philharmonic under Mravinsky.

The song recital given by Cesare Siepi brings back memories of the legendary production of Don Giovanni staged during the Mozart bicentenary celebrations of 1956. Both as Don Giovanni himself and in his recital programme that same summer, Siepi delighted audiences with his warm bass voice. It was in fact not so much a song recital in the strict sense of the term but more of a highly personal encounter with a great singer who was a declared favourite with the Salzburg Festival's audiences. It is also a prime example of the great evenings of singing with which the Festival was to regale its ecstatic audiences from 1956 onwards. Siepi's programme was chosen to showcase his beautiful voice and cultivated singing but also his artistic versatility.
