BUZZ [for both volumes]: Few great conductors can be classified by just a few characteristics. Although this cautionary remark applies to Dimitri Mitropoulos, it seems safe to say that, among other things, he was renowned for (1) performances of intensity and animation, (2) his willingness, even eagerness, to explore unfamiliar repertory, and (3) his photographic memory. Ample evidence of the first two characteristics can be heard in this collection of live performances, many previously unreleased, with the Philharmonic-Symphony and the NBC Symphony Orchestra in repertoire with which his career was closely associated. The two volumes include works by Busoni, to whose circle he had belonged as a student in Berlin, the twelve-tone Viennese masters for whom he fought major cultural battles, Prokofiev, whose Third Piano Concerto he had premiered in Berlin, Richard Strauss, whose romantic program music appealed to his soul, and Mahler, whose inner landscape he found congenial and helped popularize in his decades in America. 2008 digital restorations utilizing the revolutionary "harmonic balancing" technique".
