Product Description

This is the second CD in the series "Liszt: The Sound of Weimar" being performed by the Vienna Academy Orchestra under the Austrian conductor Martin Haselböck and released by NCA as part of the celebrations to mark the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth. Liszt wrote 13 symphonic poems in all, and those featured here are No. 3 - "Les Preludes", No. 4 - "Orpheus", and No. 1 - "Berg-Symphonie". As with the previous disc the music on this volume is performed on original instruments of the 19th century. The orchestral project "The Sound of Weimar" will include all the orchestral works of Franz Liszt in the original orchestration of the live premieres in Weimar. The recordings are taking place at the Austrian Liszt Raiding Centre, and will all be made at performances in seven concerts during 2011 and 2012 by the Vienna Academy Orchestra under the direction of the renowned Austrian conductor Martin Haselböck. He is the musical director of Musica Angelica in Santa Monica, California, and the director and founder of the Vienna Academy Orchestra. He is also a professor at the University of Vienna, where he teaches organ. Personnel: Orchester Wiener Akadamie, Martin Haselböck (conductor)

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an excellent disc which I fully recommend. It's intriguing, after some sixty-odd years of listening to orchestral music, that for once I can hear Liszt as he himself very likely would have expected it to sound - not as a heavy brash 'mush' as epitomised by the likes of Stokowski/Philadelphia etc. and unfortunately still prevalent today.
I find these performances very satisfying in their interpretation, execution and recording; the amount of orchestral detail is quite amazing - in short, this disc is well worth adding to any collection of orchestral music.
