Product Description

Product Description

Sony Classical celebrates the 100th birthday of the Italian conductor Carlo Maria Giulini (May 9, 1914 – June 14, 2005) with a 22 CD Box Set.

“Impeccably played by the BPO, the precision and polish of ensemble, the exactness of intonation, and the transparency and delicacy of texture are a delight from beginning to end.” The American Record Guide’s verdict on Carlo Maria Giulini’s 1991 coupling of Mozart’s last two symphonies (Nos. 40 & 41) is a summary of musical virtues that could apply equally well to virtually any recording by the revered Italian maestro, whose centenary in 2014 is being marked by Sony Classical with the release of a celebratory 22-CD boxed set.

Reporting his death in June 2005, the New York Times lamented the passing of “an idealistic maestro acclaimed for his refined and insightful accounts of the standard orchestral repertory”, “a deeply spiritual musician … who achieved results by projecting serene authority and providing a model of selfless devotion to the score”; while The Daily Telegraph paid tribute to “a tall man with saturnine good looks and the deportment of a Roman aristocrat” who “made no flamboyant gestures to win the adulation of audiences, but was such a charismatic presence on the rostrum that his popularity was immense.”

A former orchestral violist, Giulini was always a player’s conductor; neither a showman nor a martinet, more of a high priest or philosopher of the podium, completely and utterly dedicated to serving the composer and not his own ego. Yet, despite his modest, self-effacing manner and avoidance of platform histrionics, Giulini’s conducting career had begun in the most dramatic circumstances. An ardent anti-Fascist, he had gone into hiding to avoid conscription into the Italian army, only to re-emerge after the Allied liberation of Rome in June 1944 and make his conducting debut with an all-Brahms concert to celebrate the occasion.

Soon widely recognised as the leading Italian conductor of his generation, Giulini went on to enjoy a dazzling international career in both the opera house and the concert hall, holding principal positions with such prestigious organisations as La Scala, Milan (where he famously collaborated with Maria Callas and the stage directors Franco Zeffirelli and Luchino Visconti), the Chicago and Vienna Symphony Orchestras and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

In the 1990s, when Giulini’s artistry was at its most refined but his live appearances had become increasingly rare, the benchmark Sony Classical recordings of masterworks by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and others perfectly encapsulate and celebrate the artistry of the great maestro Giulini.

    Format: Audio CD
    After buying this set, I approached playing it with some trepidation. This is because received "wisdom" would have us believe that the older Giulini became, the slower his interpretations were. Yes, it's true that the speeds adopted in these standard repertoire works are comparatively steady and sometimes downright slow, but to judge the music making on the grounds of tempi alone would be a mistake. Giulini approaches all these works in a romantic manner. This sort of music-making is out of fashion now. One of Giulini's mentors was Bruno Walter and it shows. Giulini is simply interpreting the music through his own romantic vision. Would you want to hear the same interpretation of all these masterpieces over and over again? I think not. On some days, I like to hear Beethoven symphonies conducted by the likes of Zinman or Vanska. On other days, it will be Giulini to whom I turn. In his hands, all the music in this box sings. I have lost count of the number of times certain instrumental lines are elucidated and details are uncovered. Hearing these interpretations is like riding in a luxury car at a steady speed. There is time to look out of the window and admire the view. Giulini gives himself space to uncover detail and inner parts. At the same time, though speeds are steady, the music has an inner life and rhythmic pulse which prevents it from becoming bogged down. Every note is given its full measure. Perhaps the most controversial interpretation in the box is the Bach Mass. Be prepared to get on to Giulini's wavelength, or just treat it as a one-off experience! Look at the orchestras involved here. The cream of European ensembles. Giulini elicits beautiful playing from all of them and Sony has provided wonderful digital sound.Read more ›

    Carlo Maria Giulini first came to the attention of the international record-buying public in a series of recordings that EMI made in London, beginning in 1956: Carlo Maria Giulini Centenary Edition - The London Years

    Between 1969 and 1981, he transferred his attention to America, making records with the Chicago Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic:
    Carlo Maria Giulini Centenary Edition - The Chicago Years
    Giulini in America (Chicago, Part 2)
    Giulini in America - Complete Los Angeles Philharmonic Recordings

    In his late sixties, midway through the Los Angeles period, Giulini's interpretations became more serious and thoughtful.
    Detractors would say stodgy.
    His internal clock certainly slowed down.
    After retiring from Los Angeles, Giulini returned to the continent where he guest-conducted most of the great orchestras.
    Documented by Sony and Deutsche Gramophon (now Universal).
    Both companies are reissuing their recordings in inexpensive boxed sets.

    The following is a discography of Giulini's European recordings, 1975-1995, on Sony (*) ,
    and Deutsche Gramophon (** Giulini in Vienna) , (*** additional DG recordings):

    - Bach: Mass in B Minor BWV.

    This is a fascinating collection of recordings. I had known some before buying this set, though only actually had one (Dvorak 8). They are distnguished readings, mostly characterised by slow tempi with 'curved' turns of phrase rather than angular. 'A combination of Klemperer and Haitink' was the thought that occurred to me several times during listening. The tempi are like Klemperer's, but there the comparison ends. Klemperer always played with plenty of thrust and very pointed rhythms, despite the usually slow pulse, but comparing the repertoire recorded here with Haitink, where applicable, one becomes aware of how Haitink 'rounds the corners' to produce a suave effect. It is this that Giulini achieves here, though at Klemperer's pace, more often than not. If you like interpretations that are well thought out and felt through, you will love everything here. If however, you like the the brisker Charles Mackerras touch or clipped period instrument style, pass on by. For me, these CDs are superior even to the 'Vienna' box on DG (where duplications occur), but the DG box does inlcude the Liszt PIano Concertos with Lazar Berman and the Brahms symphonies, wich are well worth having.
