  41. GUIDO CANTELLI. THE COMPLETE 15 MARCH 1953 NEW YORK CONCERT

    GUIDO CANTELLI. THE COMPLETE 15 MARCH 1953 NEW YORK CONCERT

    $14.95


    The second of Guido Cantelli's New York Philharmonic-Symphony Sunday broadcasts of the 1952-53 season was originally to have begun with the Brahms Tragic Overture that had been played by the Philharmonic a week earlier at their concerts of March 5, 6 and 7. But stringencies of timing and a profusion of commercials necessitated the last minute substitution of a shorter composition, Verdi's Overture to La Forza del Destino. It is interesting to hear the Verdi work filtered through the Philharmonic-Symphony's darker, more rough-hewn tone and to discover that, with a different orchestra, the conductor's splendid interpretation – very Toscaninian when played by the NBC Symphony (in Music& Arts set 1120), became more rhetorical and majestic.



    The Arrau/Cantelli collaboration in the Liszt A major Concerto is a complete success. Arrau was always a distinguished Lisztian, and his virtuosity was in prime condition at this particular juncture (as a matter of fact, the Chilean pianist had made his legendary Columbia recording of the Liszt First with Ormandy and his Philadelphians the year before in a single, unedited "take") it was reissued on CD in the SONY/Heritage series. Cantelli was attentive to the music's opportunities for touching lyricism, and that Arrau, subconsciously or not, was caught up in the persuasive orchestral framework (a framework graced by the sensually expressive solos of the fine principal cellist Laszlo Varga and Cantelli's ardent sincerity). What we have here is a Liszt A major worthy of comparison with the legendary Richter/Kondrashin recording of ten years later.



    The Debussy and Ravel works of this concert's second half vividly evoke Maestro Cantelli's brilliance and genius in two particularly incandescent moments of glory. There are some who tend to disparage Debussy's incidental music for Gabriele d'Annunzio's 1911 play as "pretty wan, feeble stuff" but for some reason or other, Cantelli was mesmerized by its potential opportunities for evocative magic and kept returning to it. This version with the Philharmonic-Symphony may well be the most potent of his several recordings_thanks to the impactful immediacy of the splendidly miked Carnegie Hall sound and the dark color and physicality of the orchestra's style.



    And this account of Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe Suite No. 2 seriously rivals the magnificent Philharmonia studio recording for the expansive breadth of its Daybreak (with the triangles ringing through its final chord!), the flexibility of its pantomime (John Wummer's flute solo is ravishing), and for the marvelous rhythmic swirl and excitement of the Danse General (which is, if anything, even more thrusting and dynamic with the added voltage of a thrilled audience.)

    CD-1219(2) VERDI: REQUIEM AND TE DEUM. A PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED TOSCANINI CONCERT RECORDING. With Herva Nelli (soprano), Nan Merriman (mezzo-soprano), William McGrath (tenor) and Norman Scott (bass) and the NBC Symphony Orchestra Collegiate Chorale under Robert Shaw Carnegie Hall, New York, April 26, 1948, cond. Arturo Toscanini. Digital restoration: Aaron Z. Snyder (2008). Notes by Harris Goldsmith. Total times = 61:35 and 37:19. UPC# 0-17685-12192 0


    BUZZ: Harris Goldsmith writes in his note: "This 1948 version is almost completely without mishap. Indeed, there is ample reason to consider it the finest of the Maestro's achievements with this monumental Masterpiece [the Requiem]. The pacing resembles that of the November 23rd, 1940 performance in its nobility and unhurried breadth. A few sections of the Dies Irae are a shade tauter, less rhetorical and more flowing. A comparison between the 1938 BBC Requiem, which seems to me overly beefy and sectionalized, with the 1940 broadcast (Music & Arts CD 4240) affords striking evidence of Toscanini's quest for greater classicism and economy. By the 1948 performance that transition had been carried a step further still. But happily, there is nary a trace of that "late-Toscanini" impatience so characteristic of the 1950 La Scala and 1951 NBC Requiems (whether live or doctored recordings)". Learn More

    LEOPOLD STOKOWSKI WITH THE ALL-AMERICAN YOUTH ORCHESTRA AND THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA. CD premières of their rarest 78 rpm recordings (1940 – 1946).

    Regular Price: $44.85

    Special Price: $32.85

    Stokowski formed the All-American Youth Orchestra in 1940, its players' ages ranging from 18 to 25. He sought to combat Nazi propaganda touting the wonders of Hitler youth with an artistic statement from young emissaries of the free world. The AAYO toured South America in 1940 and North America in 1941 and was met with rave reviews. These performances boast a unique combination of past and future: the wisdom of Stokowski's vast experience allied with the pure, undiminished idealism of youth.

     In 1945, Stokowski founded the Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra. The items included here, the only ones that had not been re-circulated on commercial CDs until now, are all brief, and for the most part within a range of varying degrees of lightness in content. Beautifully restored by Mark Obert-Thorn with liner notes by Richard Freed.

    BRUNO WALTER’S BRUCKNER: THE EARLIEST RECORDINGS.

    $29.90

    Just as much as he was a champion of Mahler, Bruno Walter was an advocate for Bruckner’s music during his American years, at a time when the Austrian mystic’s works were believed to have severe structural flaws and were rarely programmed. In fact, for a 1933 guest appearance with the New York Philharmonic, Walter performed Bruckner’s Fifth, then a novelty, and after his forced immigration in 1939, he frequently and persuasively played the relatively unknown Fourth, Seventh, and Ninth Symphonies. We are fortunate to be able to present here two of his early public performances of Bruckner from broadcast recordings in the best possible sound.

    BRUNO WALTER’S MAHLER: THE EARLY NEW YORK RECORDINGS

    $29.90

    The Philharmonic-Symphony of 1942 was going through a bit of a rough patch at the height of WWII, with numerous players called up for military service. Still the players respond well and vividly to Walter’s wishes, in this account of the “Resurrection” that is noticeably more rhetorical and dramatic than his several later recordings. His response to directions such as the Molto pesante and ritardando leading to the first movement recapitulation (after Figure 20) is a spectacular bit of interpretive brinksmanship. Similarly, the movement’s coda is conducted with a searching breadth and drama not readily apparent from the Walter we know from the 1950s. The Andante moderato movement that follows is full of charm, contrasted with a truly stormy outburst climaxing the section marked Energisch bewegt. The listener can hear that the Philharmonic of 1942 executes portamento string playing more naturally than American orchestras would in the postwar era. There is even a smattering of applause from the audience in response to this movement.  And the irony of the third movement brought more acute response from Walter on this occasion than usual. The vividness of the third movement climax after Figure 50 throws the playing of the Philharmonic violins in the molto espressivo lines which follow into dramatic relief. Mona Paulee’s finely tuned account of “O Rosebud red” which follows is a moment of calm before the stormy finale. In this apocalyptic movement Walter’s response is again intensified, in details such as the caesura before Figure 2, in the balance and dynamic control of the offstage brass, and finally, in the restrained buildup to the majestic choral finale (with the Carnegie Hall organ adding richly sonorous support).

    It is tempting to speculate that the conductor’s recent uprooting from both his German homeland and his adopted Vienna refuge, combined with the traumatic events of Pearl Harbor just a month before this concert, may have manifested themselves in a certain ferocity evident in this account of the “Resurrection.” Walter’s missionary zeal for Mahler’s multidimensional music provided a ready outlet for such a vivid response to world events.

     

    The Philharmonic had played the Mahler First under Dimitri Mitropoulos in January 1941, so Walter was not teaching them the work from scratch as he had done with the NBC Symphony in 1939 (also available on a Music & Arts CD). This performance also exhibits similar rhetorical drama to that apparent in the “Resurrection” Symphony from earlier in the year. In expressiveness it even exceeds the NBC account, which is full of striking impetus but not so overtly rhetorical.

     

    In short, two previously unreleased public performance recordings that reveal a Walter given to passionate excesses not found in his later versions.

    F. CHARLES ADLER CONDUCTS MAHLER

    $29.90

    British-born conductor Adler was a student of Mahler. His concert performance of the Adagio and Purgatorio, from the 10th Symphony, issued here for the first time, displays the conductor's feeling for the Mahler idiom. -- Adler's 1952 studio recording of the 3d Symphony for SPA, reissued here, served as introduction to the score for many music lovers, even other conductors.  Leonard Bernstein came up to Hannah Adler at an embassy function to tell her how much he learned from Charles's Mahler recordings. Today we can appreciate Adler's recording as something more than merely an earnest effort.  In particular the breadth of the first and final movements, in which the conductor gives himself enough elbow room for all sorts of phrasing felicities, and the ineffable Viennese charm of the inner movements have not quite been duplicated in dozens of later recordings.

    Review

    “Many collectors will have heard these performances one way or another, but Music & Arts isn't kidding when it tells us that these performances were remastered in 1998 "from the best available sources." The live sound is great, considering its age. (Credit goes to Maggi Payne.) Furthermore, six and a fraction Mahler symphonies on six well-filled CDs, and for the price of four, is a bargain. But all this good stuff would be as useless as a preacher in a house of ill-repute if it weren't for the blazing nature of the musicianship. Our Editor usually passes Mitropoulos discs my way because he knows I sympathize, so perhaps my opinions are biased. Nevertheless, I think I am speaking reasonably when I say that all good Mahlerians will want these discs. No, they will need them. That Mitropoulitans such as myself will have to have them is predictable, and only right. In short, this is a fabulous collection: an orgy of great music interpreted greatly.

    —Raymond Tuttle, Fanfare Sept/Oct 1998
