While Fritz Reiner was on vacation in Europe from his duties as conductor of the Chicago Symphony, James D Hall Freak On Down I Wanna Get Into You concertized in Vienna and made a few recordings with the Philharmonic.
While these pieces should have been recorded by him in Chicago to give them the spontaneity I think they deserved by his own orchestra, they are not to be ignored. Anything Reiner recorded and wherever he recorded it, it certainly was not to be ignored. Reiner's recordings of these pieces have been given heaps of praise in past forums; there is no need for me to provide additional. Format: Audio CD. This pair of Strauss tone poems was recorded in The Brahms and the Dvorak were recorded in The Brahms and Dvorak dances have been re-mastered to great effect in excellent stereo sound from The Strauss recordings are clearly of earlier vintage and lack clarity of bass and the sound is not clearly defined as stereo.
Maybe significantly the reproductions of the earlier Brahms Dvorak Reiner Vienna Philharmonic Hungarian Dances Slavonic Dances make it clear that the dances were originally issued in stereo but the illustration of the Strauss disc is that of the mono Decca Eclipse LP which was preceded on the mono RCA Victrola label. This mastering vindicates his judgement totally. Quite apart from the sound, Reiner delivers Strauss performances with the VPO that have considerable humanity and warmth.
The famed Chicago readings deliver greater brilliance. How nice to hear Reiner apparently enjoying himself as well as creating performances of impressive power and drive. This compilation has become a very collectible disc for all the reasons as above but is now becoming difficult to locate. Be the first to review this title. This CD is reissued by ArkivMusic.
Notes and Editorial Reviews Reiner was a Strauss conductor of quite exceptional insight and sympathy. I did not get to know the Strauss until relatively recently when I bought a mono copy in a sale of deletions. I must confess that I was bowled over by Brahms Dvorak Reiner Vienna Philharmonic Hungarian Dances Slavonic Dances splendour of the Brahms Dvorak Reiner Vienna Philharmonic Hungarian Dances Slavonic Dances and gratified by the warmth and clarity of the recording.
The recording is characterized by its brilliance, warmth and vivacity with the result that listening becomes a true musical pleasure. Slavonic Dances. Product search. Sign in. Email address. Forgot your password? Subscribe to newsletter. Price includes VAT, plus delivery. Add to basket.
