More details

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.

This previously unreleased 1969 studio recording from the SWR vaults captures Sir John Barbirolli during a month of guest conducting in Germany in the final years of his life. Barbirolli takes a more leisurely approach to both the Haydn and the Berlioz. [...]
The recording is remarkably clear and natural sounding for its age, testimony to both the fine German engineering of the time as well as the splendid re-mastering job.
