Releases Featuring Hans Rosbaud

Hans Rosbaud (July 22, 1895 – December 29, 1962), was an Austrian conductor, particularly associated with the music of the twentieth century.

Hans Rosbaud (July 22, 1895 – December 29, 1962), was an Austrian conductor, particularly associated with the music of the 20th century. The composer Francis Poulenc said in 1954, ‘Music buffs believe that the greatest living conductor is Toscanini: musicians know that it is Hans Rosbaud.’ Similarly, Gramophone hailed Rosbaud as ‘one of the unsung heroes of mid-20th-century music’. Hans Rosbaud, a native of Graz, was a champion of contemporary works while strongly advocating Mahler’s music after the Second World War.

    The composer Francis Poulenc said in 1954, ‘Music buffs believe that the greatest living conductor is Toscanini: musicians know that it is Hans Rosbaud.’ Similarly, Gramophone hailed Rosbaud as ‘one of the unsung heroes of mid-20th-century music’. Hans Rosbaud (1895–1962), a native of Graz, was a champion of contemporary works while strongly advocating Mahler’s music after the Second World War. This ‘live’ studio recording from 1951 is a new addition to the Rosbaud discography, released for the first time on ICA Classics. Rosbaud is captured here at the height of his powers with the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra, one of his favourite orchestras. The 50th anniversary of Rosbaud’s death was in December 2012 so this release is a belated tribute to this great conductor. More details

    Hans Rosbaud

    £ 9.99

    Gramophone recently remarked that Hans Rosbaud ‘was one of the unsung heroes of mid-20th-century music, who … gave thoroughly rehearsed and assimilated performances and premieres of the widest possible range of music’. After the Second World War, Rosbaud became the single most important interpreter of and advocate for Sibelius’s music in the German-speaking world; he understood Sibelius’s language as few conductors ever have. This work is an important addition to the Rosbaud discography since he never recorded the Symphony No.6 commercially. Throughout his career, Rosbaud manifested a special affinity for French culture and music. After the war, he was the first German-speaking conductor to be invited to perform in France. Here he conducts totally idiomatic and stunning performances of Debussy’s masterpieces, the Nocturnes being a new addition to his discography. More details
