  1. Classic BBC Proms (5 DVDs)

    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. Gennadi Rozhdestvensky and Yuri Temirkanov lead two deeply Russian programmes, and characteristic Viennese waltzes – including The Blue Danube – are executed with exuberance, good humour and panache by three conductors well suited to the genre.

    Emil Gilels

    £ 9.99

    These rare live broadcast recordings make their first appearance on CD. The Beethoven Piano Concerto No.4 from the 1966 Edinburgh Festival together with the distinguished accompaniment of Sir John Barbirolli produce a performance of great poetry, imagination and power. The Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.2 in the abridged version by Siloti from 1959 brings out Gilels' incredible technique and virtuosity (the New York Times dubbed him 'the little giant') with Kirill Kondrashin transforming the London Philharmonic into an authentic Russian sounding orchestra. ICA's Ambient Mastering recreates the atmosphere of both concerts perfectly. More details

    Erich Leinsdorf / Boston Symphony Orchestra

    £ 16.50

    Intense and driven, Leinsdorf’s interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony gives us a fresh reading of this familiar music. With insightful performances featuring a flexible and brilliant Boston Symphony Orchestra, all three works are new to Leinsdorf’s discography.The ICA Classics Legacy series represents an historic account of performances by some of the world’s greatest artists. This DVD features some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and their Music Director, Erich Leinsdorf.While the material has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques, certain visual artefacts and distortions remain in some instances due to the age of the film. Despite this, it remains of exceptional musical interest and historic value and is released here for the first time on DVD.More details

  4. Evgeny Svetlanov
    Legacy

    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    The performance of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.1 in April 2002 with the BBCSO was the last concert he gave before his death two months later. Svetlanov's studio made Tchaikovsky recordings with the USSR Symphony Orchestra for Melodiya in the 1960's were the cornerstones of the catalogue at the time and he brings an unqualified authority to the Barbican concert recorded here. Svetlanov’s account of Stravinsky's Firebird is superbly detailed and imaginative with the Philharmonia in tremendous form. The digital sound recorded in the Barbican for both performances is totally natural and warm. These live recordings are issued for the first time on CD. More details

  5. Evgeny Svetlanov
    Legacy

    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    These performances have never been issued before on CD. Shostakovich's Symphony No.10 was given on 21 August 1968, the very night that Soviet tanks invaded Czechoslovakia in a concentrated effort to halt Dubcek's political reforms. The atmosphere in the Albert Hall, as can heard from the shouts of protest, was electric and very tense but after the first few bars, the disruption was finally drowned out and Svetlanov, according to those present, then went on to give the performance of his life. Svetlanov's widow, on hearing this CD, said that the performance brought tears to her eyes and the emotion of that evening came across vividly. Two short bonus titles have been added - Tchaikovsky's 'Melodrama' from The Snow Maiden and two excerpts from Rimsky-Korsakov's Invisible City of Kitezh reflecting the historic three concerts Svetlanov and his orchestra gave in London at the August 1968 Proms. ICA's Ambient Mastering recreates the... More details

  6. Gennadi Rozhdestvensky
    Legacy

    Gennadi Rozhdestvensky

    £ 9.99

    These Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev recordings in stereo have never been issued before on CD while the Mussorgsky was released on the defunct BBC Radio Classics series over 15 years ago. Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.4 from the 1979 Leeds Music Festival is one of the conductor's most inspired performances treating the work as a broad tragedy of the highest order without sentimentalising it. The Mussorgsky is a rarity, taken from the 1981 Proms in stereo - the version of A Night on a Bare Mountain used in the composer's Sorochintsy Fair which includes a chorus and a bass-baritone (David Wilson- Johnson). Prokofiev's The Love for Three Oranges Suite was given on a Far East tour in Kurashiki, Japan in 1981 and benefits from Rozhedestvensky's acclaimed experience in ballet with a performance of wit and excitement.

  7. Gennadi Rozhdestvensky
    Legacy

    Gennadi Rozhdestvensky

    £ 9.99

    Gennady Rozhdestvensky is considered one of the greatest Tchaikovsky conductors today. His Russian heritage, together with his outstanding leadership of the Bolshoi ballet, contributes to the total authenticity of his performances. This live recording of Tchaikovsky's popular Symphony No.5 comes from the 1978 Flanders Festival in Belgium and has been recorded in excellent stereo. The fill-up consists of Janacek's rhapsody Taras Bulba recorded at the 1981 Proms and is a new addition to Rozhdestvensky's discography. It is arguably Janacek's most powerful dramatic work and is here given a searing performance is superb stereo which fully captures the large orchestra used, complete with organ, brass and percussion. Released 4th November 2013. More details

    Legacy

    Gennadi Rozhdestvensky at the BBC Proms

    £ 16.50

    Performed during his tenure as Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony, the Proms performances featured on this DVD represent Gennadi Rozhdestvensky at the highest point of his relationship with the orchestra. One of the premier conductors of Russian repertoire, Rozhdestvensky is well known for his interpretations of ballet music - this performance of the second act of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker perfectly demonstrates his affinity with the genre. 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

  9. Géza Anda
    Legacy

    Géza Anda

    £ 9.99

    Hungarian-born Géza Anda (1921–1976) was described by the conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler as ‘a troubadour of the piano’ whose early death robbed the world of one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century. This spine-tingling account of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1 has never been issued before. It is a ‘live’ studio recording from 1958 with the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra accompanied by Georg Solti, a fellow Hungarian, and the performance generates enormous electricity between the two artists. The live recording from 1954 of Brahms’s Piano Concerto No.2 conducted by Otto Klemperer has been newly remastered and is released for the first time on CD. The live recording from 1954 of Brahms’s Piano Concerto No.2 conducted by Otto Klemperer has been issued before but it has been newly remastered for this release. It qualifies for a re-release on the basis that it is one the most recommendable versions of the work and should... More details

  10. Great Symphonies (5 CDs)

    Great Symphonies (5 CDs)

    £ 24.99

    Beethoven’s Ninth and Mendelssohn’s “Italian” are two of the great symphonies to appear in this collection, which also features works by Tchaikovsky, Schumann and Brahms, among others. With renowned conductors including Sir Adrian Boult and Gennadi Rozhdestvensky at the helm, these expertly remastered recordings represent an excellent addition to any symphony-lover’s collection. 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

  12. Margot Fonteyn / Michael Somes
    Legacy

    Margot Fonteyn / Michael Somes

    £ 16.50

    Exceptional studio productions from the late 1950s, all three of the Tchaikovsky ballet performances featured on this DVD are released for the first time. The perfect partners, Margot Fonteyn and Michael Somes give stunning performances with Fonteyn at her most beguiling as Aurora in Sleeping Beauty – the ballet in which she and the Sadler’s Wells ballet made their historic American debut in 1949.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

  13. Mstislav Rostropovich / Benjamin Britten
    Legacy

    Mstislav Rostropovich / Benjamin Britten

    £ 16.50

    These recordings represent an overview of some of the headiest years of Mstislav Rostropovich’s career. Introduced to Britten through Shostakovich, Rostropovich formed a close partnership with the British composer, who was inspired several major cello compositions by the Russian cellist. This special relationship is evident here in their collaborative performances from the opening concert of the new Snape Maltings Concert Hall, which includes rare audiovisual footage of the Maltings before it was destroyed by fire in 1969 and rebuilt. More details

  14. Sir Georg Solti / Chicago Symphony Orchestra
    Legacy

    Sir Georg Solti / Chicago Symphony Orchestra

    £ 16.50

    By the time of this Royal Festival Hall concert in 1985, Sir Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra had cemented their reputation as a truly legendary partnership. Solti demonstrates his profound understanding of Mozartian style in a subtly nuanced account of the composer’s Symphony No.39, while he and the CSO’s virtuoso musicians bring out all the drama and emotion of Tchaikovsky’s thrilling Fourth Symphony. More details

  15. Yuri Bashmet
    Live

    Yuri Bashmet

    £ 9.99

    Yuri Bashmet is one of the greatest viola players of our time, featured here as an equally impressive conductor of the Novaya Rossiya State Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble that has been conducted by the likes of Vladimir Ashkenazy and Valery Gergiev. Bashmet became Chief Conductor of the orchestra in 2002. With ‘razor-sharp performances’ (David Nice), Bashmet has been compared to Mravinsky in his dynamic and fresh approach to these three core symphonic works. More details

  16. 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
