CD Reviews

Great Beethoven from Furtwaengler. (So what else is new?)
Ralph J. Steinberg | New York, NY United States | 11/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Beethoven Fourth is the live concert counterpart of the famous 1943 radio broadcast version, previously issued on DG Lp's. Comparing the two, this one has much more drive and impulse. Still, I have a slight preference for the broadcast version (also on Opus Kura), for its incomparable lyric grace and lighter-than-air textures. But this one is very treasurable. The Violin Concerto, with Roehn, is all passion and fire; I don't remember having been as impressed with this performance when I first heard it on DG. The sound of this CD, especially in the Violin Concerto, is miraculous in its clarity and impact. Furtwaengler remains the greatest Beethoven conductor."
