Format: Audio CD
Long ago, around 1960, I bought the original HMV LP of 'Don Juan' and 'Till', reissued here on CD. It is lovely to hear them again, coupled with a highly-regarded 'Vltava' and 'Tod und Verklarung'. The recordings were made in the Musikvereinsaal in Vienna in 1950, 1951 and 1954. They survive well in terms of sound, with perhaps just a little congestion in the largest climaxes and a slight lack of clarity in the string lines at certain places - they are certainly fully acceptable. The performances are very Viennese and very Furtwangler too, quite unforced, rather gentle and relaxed in places, very gemutlich. In 'Don Juan' the love music in particular is marvellously handled and very effective. Coincidentally I listened to Fritz Reiner's Chicago 'Till' just a few days ago, all glitter and immediacy, and very different from the Furtwangler approach. The Reiner is a fine performance but in places sounds just a litle perfunctory. Though warmth and geniality are to the forefront with Furtwangler, I don't want to give the impression that there is any lack of fire when required. The big brass climax in 'Till' just before the 'execution' is as thrilling as I have ever heard. This is partly because Furtwangler paces the works so well, with a good sense of structure and proportion. I have a slight reservation about 'Vltava', which is very relaxed at the start. I could do with a little more forward momentum, and it's interesting that, at the reprise of the opening, Furtwangler's tempo is slightly faster. That said, the moonlight on the water episode is magical and there is plenty of grandeur at the end, when the river reaches Prague. There is no doubt that this CD is a more than worthy addition to EMI's 'Great Artist of the Century' series, and it is in fact a very distinguished and, for me, pleasantly nostalgic issue. Warmly recommended.
