  1. Dimitri Mitropoulos
    Legacy

    Dimitri Mitropoulos

    £ 9.99

    The Greek born conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos was extremely gifted - his photographic memory allowed him to conduct without a score in concert and also in rehearsal. He made his US debut in 1936, later becoming Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, where he was succeeded by Leonard Bernstein.Mitropoulos was a frequent visitor to the WDR in Cologne in the mid 1950's, whose broadcasts have been well documented, including Mahler's Symphony No.3 on ICA Classics (ICAC5021) - 2011 winner of the prestigious Gustav-Mahler Toblach Award. Mitropoulos conducted Berlioz's colossal Requiem with its choirs and off-stage brass at the Salzburg Festival on 15 August 1956 - this Cologne performance followed on 26 August 1956.This ICA release is the first official recording using the original 1956 WDR master tapes – the sound is remarkable. The tenor soloist in the 'Sanctus' is the young Nicolai Gedda.  The performance is over 82 minutes and is... More details

  2. Great Choral Classics (5 CDs)

    Great Choral Classics (5 CDs)

    £ 24.99

    This special collection brings together thrilling performances of four choral masterpieces under the baton of four legendary conductors: Steinberg’s nuanced and expressive account of Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, the electrifying drama of Verdi’s and Berlioz’s Requiems brought to the fore by Markevitch and Mitropoulos, and a magisterial live BBC Proms performance of Mahler’s Das klagende Lied conducted by Rozhdestvensky. These recordings won wide critical acclaim on their first release: Gramophone hailed Mitropoulous’s Berlioz as ‘remarkable’, while The Guardian declared Markevitch’s Verdi Requiem to be ‘one of the great interpretations’.

  3. Sir John Barbirolli
    Legacy

    Sir John Barbirolli

    £ 9.99

    Both in the concert hall and on record, Sir John Barbirolli was associated with the music of English composers, but his interpretations of Mahler and Sibelius, as well as those of Berlioz, Debussy and Ravel, have always been very much admired. This new live studio recording of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique with the SWF orchestra in Baden-Baden from February 1969 is in state-of-the-art stereo sound and does full justice to Berlioz’s wonderful score. Haydn's Symphony No.83 ‘The Hen’ (a Barbirolli favourite), comes from the same concert which makes this CD of two timeless classics excellent value with over 80 minutes of music. More details

  4. Yuri Temirkanov at the BBC Proms
    Legacy

    Yuri Temirkanov at the BBC Proms

    £ 16.50

    Yuri Temirkanov conducts the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra in this deeply Russian Proms programme, provoking a rapturous response from the audience and three animated encores. Described by David Nice as ‘creative conducting at its greatest’, Temirkanov’s spine-tingling rendition of Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony displays his deep love of this music. Temirkanov chooses to make a short cut in the third movement of Manfred with more substantial cuts in the finale – the most significant of these being the omission of the closing organ chorale – but thanks to this compelling performance, his overall conception of the work makes a very powerful impact.The ICA Classics Legacy series presents a collection of historic performances by some of the world’s greatest artists. These performances are released on DVD for the first time, incorporating rare archive footage that has been expertly and lovingly restored.More details
