5.0 out of 5 stars adventurous tradition, 28 Oct. 2011
This is one for whom the word "schoenberg" means difficulty,incomprehension and no musical pleasure!Not only is the orchestration of the Brahms quartet full of sensuous sonorities,it is virtually a new symphony by the great Romantic classic and marks a transition to the music of Schoenberg himself ,here represented by the version for full orchestra of the first chamber symphony.The addition of the Film Music shows Schoenberg at his modern dramatic best.An excellent introduction for anyone expanding horizons beyond the safest repertoire.

5.0 out of 5 stars strength and cohesion, 1 July 2011
This is an account that displays Klemperer at his symphonic best with none of the exaggarated gear changes often heard, but with a natural cohesive flow between the sections in the outer movements and an idiomatic organ-like sound from the orchestra.The performance is as french as the score demands,free from mannerisms,powerful and stylistically convincing in unusual repertoire for the great conductor.

5.0 out of 5 stars great connection soloist/pianist, 12 Jun. 2011
Fulsome romanticism and excellent understanding between violin and piano.Some of the tempi are perhaps rather measured(as in op.100 opening)but Steinbacher's huge tone and warmth of expression carries everything before it.The rhythms in the FAE sonata are incisive and thrilling.Exceptional as one expects from this wonderfully talented artist.
