  2. Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli
    Legacy

    Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli

    £ 9.99

    Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (1920–1995) was born in Brescia, Italy. In 1939, he won first prize in the Geneva International Piano Competition, where he was acclaimed as ‘a new Liszt’ by pianist Alfred Cortot, a member of the judging panel. His recordings of Ravel and Debussy were considered essential for any collection. Any recording featuring Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli is an important event because he recorded very little in the studio. This live SWR recording from the Ludwigsburg Festival in 1956 shows a Mozart style far removed from that presented today. These are full-blooded interpretations and show Michelangeli with a very strong forward drive. The recording made by SWR is of excellent quality, showcasing Michelangeli’s superb playing. These two concertos were performed throughout Michelangeli’s career, but the recording here was made when he was thirty-six years old and at the peak of his powers. More details

As a bonus, the DVD includes extracts from Mendelssohn’s ‘Scottish’ Symphony which Britten conducts with the utmost subtlety and style despite being gravely ill at the time. All three performances give fascinating insights into one of the finest musicians of the twentieth century.The ICA Classics Legacy series presents a collection of historical 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.The first track on this DVD is a brief introduction to ICA Classics.

    Classic BBC Proms (5 DVDs)

    £ 39.99

    This box set embraces five historic performances from the BBC Proms by some of the world’s greatest artists. From the very first season of Promenade Concerts in 1895, the Proms has championed the finest classical music. This unmissable anthology features the legendary partnership of Sir Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in music by Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Debussy, and Garrick Ohlsson’s impassioned account of Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto.

The Bach concerto for two violins formed the duo’s first foreign engagement whilst the Mozart was performed two years later in a sell-out performance at the Royal Albert Hall.

  9. Emil Gilels
    Legacy

    Emil Gilels

    £ 9.99

    Emil Gilels is regarded by many as one of the most significant pianists of the twentieth century and is universally admired for his superb technical control and burnished tone. This BBC recording in stereo of his 1979 Abbotsholme recital features the Russian pianist in unusual and seldom-performed repertoire such as Schumann’s Four Klavierstücke, the Brahms Ballades, Chopin's Polonaise No.2 and Sonata No.3, works he performed only a handful of times in the later stages of his career. This is an exceptionally rare CD and presents the great Russian pianist at his best in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. A beautifully played encore – Mozart’s D minor Fantasy K397 – completes this well-filled 80+ minute-disc. More details

  10. Herbert von Karajan (2 CDs)
    Legacy

    Herbert von Karajan (2 CDs)

    £ 14.99

    This 2CD set is sourced from the Music Preserved Archive. The combination of Karajan and the Vienna Philharmonic playing Mozart and Bruckner drew a ‘packed and raving audience’ according to Neville Cardus in The Guardian. The Bruckner Symphony No.7 received great acclaim from the Daily Telegraph, with a review headlined ‘Noble Height in Bruckner: Vibrant Vienna Philharmonic’, and the critic Donald Mitchell writing ‘London has not heard a Bruckner performance of this quality for years’. Mitchell went on to add that the music-making was ‘undoubtedly touched by interpretative genius’. In his booklet essay, Richard Osborne notes that ‘the performances of both Mozart and Bruckner are quicker here than any of Karajan’s studio performances … they are also freer in places and given to a number of astonishing build-ups of power’. This is the first CD release of this material. More details

  11. Herbert von Karajan (2CDs)
    Legacy

    Herbert von Karajan (2CDs)

    £ 14.99

    This release has been sourced from the Richard Itter archive. The collection is very important for collectors because it has never been released before onto the market. Herbert von Karajans association with the Philharmonia Orchestra started in 1948 and continued to 1960. Despite this long relationship, there are practically no live recordings from Londons Royal Festival Hall of Karajan and the Philharmonia caught on the wing. Karajans live Philharmonia account of Tchaikovskys Symphony No.4 in 1955 is an unrestrained version of his studio recording of 1953 which The Gramophone descibed as phenominal, a record in a thousand. Ravels Rapsodie espagnole was played in London just prior to Karajans Philharmonia tour of the USA in Autumn 1955 and was thought at the time to be even more sensuosly beautiful than his widely praised studio account with the Philharmonia from 1953. The Mozart concert is important because it features the Romanian... More details

International Record Review: ‘Marriner and Jacoby seem to be on the same wavelength… often extremely beautiful’; Gramophone: ‘a wonderful clarity of finger work’; Fanfare Magazine: ‘This is Mozart playing on a par with such greats as Rosenberg, Haskil, and Fischer’; The Guardian: “Ingrid Jacoby is in suitably playful mood, dancing through the finale of the E flat concerto and charming us with the childlike grace of No.27’s larghetto’; More details

  17. Leon Fleisher
    Legacy

    Leon Fleisher

    £ 9.99

    Pierre Monteux, the celebrated French conductor, called Leon Fleisher 'the pianistic find of the century'.  After his early success in the US,  Fleisher lived in Europe during the 1950s, winning the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels.  During this time he made highly successful tours of Europe, North and South America and his partnership with George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra in the late 1950's and 1960's is today considered one of the great recording legacies. These exciting and penetrating performances of Mozart and Beethoven concertos made in 1957 and 1960 have never been issued before and represent one of the few examples of Fleisher caught live, wonderfully engineered by the WDR. During the 1960's Fleisher was diagnosed with focal dystonia in his right hand forcing him to stop playing and concentrate only with his left hand. He eventually recovered and by 2008 was recording again as a two handed pianist. This release... More details

    Legacy

    Otto Klemperer

    £ 9.99

  19. Otto Klemperer
    Legacy

    Otto Klemperer

    £ 9.99

    Otto Klemperer (1885-1973) was one of the most celebrated German conductors of the 20th century. On the 8 February 1954 Klemperer made his debut in Cologne with Mozart's Symphony No.29 a favourite of the conductor. Eigel Kruttge who had been Klemperer's assistant at the Cologne Opera in the 1920's was the producer at the KRSO, famously described Klemperer's initial rehearsal as 'From the first bars, the lions claws' and apt description for the tall and imposing conductor. Following the success of the Klemperer's first concert, he was invited back in the same month to conduct Beethoven's Symphony No.1 which Kruttge wrote 'Everything absolutely right'. The broadcast of the Bach Suite No.3, another favourite work of the conductor, followed in October 1955, almost a year after he recorded them with the Philharmonia. WDR's broadcasts of all these concerts are of very high technical quality and have never been issued before. More details
