Otto Klemperer dirige Bruckner : Symphonie n°4 "Romantique", avec l'Orchestre Symphonique de Vienne - Hans Rosbaud dirige Mahler : Symphonie n°7 "Le Chant de la Nuit" avec l'Orchestre Symphonique de la Radio de Berlin
Neither of these recordings represents its conductor or the music at their best, but both have interesting aspects. The Bruckner was conducted by a somewhat younger and more vital Otto Klemperer than the man who recorded the same work for EMI. But the Vienna Symphony in the postwar era was a scrappy, underfed ensemble that couldn't really produce the sound Bruckner requires. Yet anything Hans Rosbaud recorded is bound to be of some interest, since he was such a commanding and insightful musician. This 1952 broadcast performance doesn't really catch fire like the best Rosbaud, but its insights will still be of great interest to Mahlerians. And you certainly get a lot of music for your money here. --Leslie Gerber

Rosbaud was a pioneering conductor of Mahler`s 7th on vinyl and despite scrappy orchestral playing on this 1952 recording , the interpretation projects the mood of the music very effectively . The Bruckner Fourth is an engaging performance from Klemperer and both items are in okay mono sound .

Try Klemperer's Bavarian Symphony recording instead

Be warned: this is not typical Bruckner. The tempi are quicker, the textures leaner (odd things to associate with Klemperer, but true). Klemperer's version of Bruckner's 4th Symphony in this recording is clear-eyed, dramatic and propulsive. Like other recordings Klemperer made for Vox in the early 1950's, it captures more of the qualities that we heard in his live performances later in his life. And, like the other Klemperer/Vienna Symphony recordings, it suffers from the Vienna Symphony's thin and coarse playing. They try hard, but in the end the performance suffers from their inadequacy. Vox complicates matters with detailed but harsh sound. You can find the same basic interpretation in Klemperer's later, better-played and recorded live performance with the Bavarian Radio Symphony. That live recording matches this one in tempi, phrasing and basic interpretive stance. It's a 5-star performance. This should be 4-5 stars for the interpretation; it's 0-1 star for the playing and recording.
