Szell’s interpretations of Wagner’s orchestral bits have a longstanding critical tailwind behind them, and justifiably so. Here, for the opera-averse, is a whole CD of some of Wagner’s best known bleeding chunks, played as if no prisoners will be taken. Relative to the rich grandeur and depth of (say) furtwangler, these renditions resemble a very lean cut of meat, with no marbling (and certainly no trimmings!). It's music that engulfs the senses and conjurs images of distant worlds, of sourcery, of mythic gods, and of heroic deeds. George Szell was at the peak of his powers when these recordings were made, and the Cleveland Symphony was one of the wonders of the orchestral world. Full-bodied sound to match Wagner's mythic vision.

In the heyday of George Szell s tenure as its chief conductor, declared Gramophone, The Cleveland Orchestra had few if any peers among the world s great orchestras. Coinciding with the orchestra s centenary in 2018, Sony Classical is excited to announce one of the most ambitious reissue projects of recent times, a comprehensive collection of the Clevelanders recordings made under the baton of their iconic fourth music director. There are also the recordings Szell made in the early 1950s as guest conductor of the New York Philharmonic, including the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto with Vladimir Horowitz. There are the pianist George Szell s outstanding chamber music recordings, including Mozart with the Budapest Quartet. There are also substantial interviews with the maestro.
