Nocturne symphonique : op. 43 by Ferruccio Busoni( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thielemann kombiniert nun Werke der beiden Antipoden: neben Pfitzners selten gespieltem Klavierkonzert dirigiert er auch Busonis" Nocturne symphonique". In der zweiten Konzerthälfte erklingt dann die erste Symphonie von Johannes Brahms. Dieser galt seinerseits den einen als konservativ, den anderen als fortschrittlich. Den Solopart im Klavierkonzert von Pfitzner übernimmt der amerikanische Pianist Tzimon Barto, der schon in der Vergangenheit mit Christian Thielemann musiziert hat und für die außergewöhnlichen Herausforderungen dieses Konzerts in besonderem Maße geeignet sein dürfte. Das Magazin" Der Spiegel"bezeichnete ihn in einem großen Porträt als einen der" vielschichtigsten, unerschöpflichsten und besten Pianisten der Gegenwart". Zahlreiche CD-Einspielungen legen davon eindrucksvoll Zeugnis ab

Hearing either Jon Vickers or Christa Ludwig, two of the most riveting singing actors of their time, in Parsifal would be cause for celebration. This recording presents both of these great artists in their only joint broadcast of Wagner's mystical opera, with James Levine bringing his own special magic to the occasion, making it indeed a Parsifal for the ages. Martti Talvela is an authoritative, compassionate Gurnemanz and Bernd Weikl a memorable Amfortas

Symphonie nr. 5 by Anton Bruckner( )

7 editions published in 2005 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Von allen Sinfonien Anton Bruckners ist die Fünfte die kühnste, weil sie sich in ein Gestrüpp hartnäckig wiederkehrender Motive verläuft. Sie treibt den Hörer in eine Wirrnis, aus der es kein Entkommen gibt. Das Katastrophische, das Bruckner immer auszeichnet, ist hier kompromisslos auf die Spitze getrieben. Erst in seiner Neunten wagte er wieder, an so hörerfeindliche Musik anzuknüpfen. Vor neun Monaten dirigierte Bernard Haitink, einer der ganz großen Bruckner-Interpreten, die Fünfte mit den Sinfonikern des Bayerischen Rundfunks in München. Der jetzt erschienene Live-Mitschnitt (BR-Klassik) belegt eine auf jedes Partiturdetail achtende Lesart. Im Zentrum stehen bei Haitink die vielen Zusammenbrüche und das häufige Abreißen der Musik. Die mit urtümlich dunklem Klang ausgespielten Eruptionen und Klanggewitter wirken deshalb umso zerfahrener. Haitinks Version der Fünften ist das Porträt eines Komponisten, der allzu gern ans gigantische Gelingen glauben würde, den dann jedoch übermächtige Zweifel immer wieder zum Innehalten zwingen" (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 10. 11. 2010)
Eine Alpensinfonie : op. 64 by Richard Strauss( Recording )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The year 2014 marks the 150th birthday of the Munich-born composer Richard Strauss, and this CD highlights two key genres in his oeuvre: the "Alpine Symphony", composed in 1915, his last and greatest tone poem, and the four symphonic interludes from the opera "Intermezzo", first performed in Dresden in 1924. The Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Möst, currently Musical Director of the Vienna State Opera and Principal Conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra, is also a popular guest conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. The music of Strauss lies on the threshold of the modern age, and Welser-Möst interprets it with a musical dramatic style enhanced by the classical-romantic tradition. This CD from the BR-KLASSIK label celebrates not only the 150th anniversary of Strauss's birth but also the 25th anniversary of Franz Welser-Moest's regular appearances as a guest conductor with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks" (prestoclassical.co.uk)
