Elgar, Edward - Enigma Variations - Bernstein, Leonard

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Bernstein's only engagement with the BBC Symphony Orchestra took place in April 1982. Founded in 1930 by Sir Adrian Boult, the orchestra was admired for its interpretations of contemporary music, and had played host to distinguished conductors such as Arturo Toscanini and Bruno Walter.

Bernstein and the orchestra got off to a rocky start - Bernstein was spectacularly late for the first rehearsal and made no apology for this. But out of this rough beginning grew a partnership between orchestra and conductor that resulted in perhaps the most controversial and infamous and perhaps the most beautifully intense interpretation of Elgar's Engima Variations. Most famously, under Bernstein's baton, 'Nimrod' (Variation IX) lasts five minutes and fifteen seconds - nearly twice as long as most versions. But, as Humphrey Burton quotes in the liner notes for this release; 'when you can see the music as well as hearing it, when you watch on camera the intensity of Bernstein's beat and body language (particularly in the studio rehearsal where he implores the orchestra to 'keep it as pure and noble as you can') you are caught up in this wonderfully spiritual music.'
