Carl Schuricht (1880-1967), who conducted many major orchestras all over the world but had no permanent post after the Second World War, is represented in this collection by repertoire ranging from J.C. Bach to Reger, all of it appearing here for the first time in any format.



Schuricht in a sense bridged the older generation of Romantic interpreters and the modem, objective style of conducting. His sense of balance derived from the old school, with a firm bass line and a typically layered sound. His fine ear resulted in allowing all important parts to be heard. Schuricht's tempo choices were generally on the quick side, and flexible as a rule. His rhetorical gestures were plentiful but rarely extreme, and always with a clear structural basis. The drama of Schuricht's performances resulted from the music itself, not from his podium manner. He was on one hand Felix Weingartner's heir, but undeniably also a product of the same time and culture that produced Abendroth, Furtwängler, and Knappertsbusch.



Schuricht's repertoire ranged from Bach and Handel right through to the Twentieth Century. In addition to composers mentioned above, he conducted contemporary works by Werner Egk, Gottfried von Einem, Frank Martin, Marcel Poot, Rudi Stephan, and a host of others. After the war, he was best known for his interpretations of Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Mozart, and Schumann. He would not however hesitate to program an occasional novelty in his later years, such as Alban Berg's Seven Early Songs.



This new set "features performances that are often inspired and rarely less than fine"

-- Steve Holtje, CDNOW Senior Editor, Classical, March 2002



"I have always found in Schuricht's commercial recordings impressive gifts in pacing, balance, and orchestral nuance; but the level of fiery intensity in this collection of live performances brings to light a Schuricht I'd never heard before, and one I'd very much like to encounter again in the near future." Highly recommended

--Barry Brenesal, Fanfare, Mar./Apr. 2002



"Many commentators would rank Carl Schuricht a notch or two beneath Furtwängler, and yet recent releases of little-known broadcast recordings by Schuricht confirm a rostrum presence of comparable individuality --mightily impressive. "

--Robert Cowan, Gramophone, Jan. 2002



"there's tremendous pleasure and enlightenment awaiting you"

--Dan Davis, La Folia Online Music Review, June 2002



"A rugged authority permeates Carl Schuricht's 1951 broadcast of Bruckner's 9th Symphony, with the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, a performance characterized by structural clarity and shattering climaxes --Maggi Payne's restorations are very fine."

--Gary Galo, ARSC Journal, Spring 2002



"Virtually all of the repertory enjoys Schuricht's lean, elastic approach; suave, pointed, but still capable of velocity and sensuality, much in Weingartner mold and even more richly textured... The range and energy of this distinguished artist consistently command our attention."

--Gary Lemco, Audiophile Audition, January 2002
