5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful performances & an incredible bargain. 16 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first came across these two wonderful performances on LP in the 1960's. They were first issued by Deutsche Grammophon in good mono sound in the 1950's. Their reissue on CD, on a single disc, is a cause for great celebration. Fricsay's performance of the Tchaikovsky 6th Symphony would be one of my "Desert Island" discs - I have never heard a performance that equals it, let alone outshines it, in its passion and honesty, though I would admit that the earlier (mono) performance by Mravinsky & the Leningrad orchestra ran it very close. Fricsay sees the first movement as a symphonic whole but manages to extract maximum expressiveness within a fast tempo for the development section onwards. The slow movement is well played too while the March is taken at a hair-raising pace which seems to be completely in sympathy with the musical argument. The long, slow Finale is as moving as any other performance I've ever heard and Fricsay never allows self-pity to dominate. All in all a truly memorable experience. The performance of Haydn's 44th Symphony - the "Trauer" as it's called (Mourning) - is beauthifully played by the Berlin RIAS Orchestra, and certainly deserves to live with a number of subsequent successful readings from other conductors. For the 1950's Fricsay's lightness of touch & his understanding of Haydn's "storm & stress" work were outstanding, and in many ways this reading anticipates some of the performance haracteristics champoined by later period-instrument players (without any of the sometimes distracting mannerisms of some period performances). In both symphonies the transfers to CD have been managed very well indeed and I don't believe the mono sound in any way detracts from enjoyment of the music in such marvellous performances. Very very strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lucky find 18 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had doubted I would ever hear again this old recording of Tchaikovsky's great last symphony played by the Berliner PhilharmoniKer and conducted by the wonderful Ferenc Fricsay. I used to play it so often as a teenager, with the lights off, sitting in the dark. My life-long interest in classical music (you could say 'dependency') really began in these formative years with this record. Today I have a few other well regarded recordings of the Pathetique, in particular by Evgeny Mravinsky, but as soon as I was aware that Fricsay's 1950s recording was available I wanted to hear it again. It is anything but a disappointment and I'm very grateful to Archipel Records 'Desert Island Collection' for issuing it. The sleeve of the cd gives basic information only (no introduction or account) but the recording is very worthwhile.
