Wilhelm Furtwangler’s Vienna Philharmonic discography is an unpredictable mix of bull’s-eyes and near-misses, with a couple of sleepy symphonic performances thrown in for good measure. The majestic but under-motivated 1952 Eroica is no match for either its 1947 or 1948 predecessors and the 1947 Brahms First that Testament recently reissued (8/98) is quite upstaged by at least three live performances that were released after Furtwangler’s death. This particular collection is distinguished by outstanding sound quality, far better in fact than anything previously issued. Christoph Gluck Composer. Wilhelm Furtwängler Conductor.

Three overtures by Weber: Der Freishutz, Oberon and Euryanthe. Two by Gluck: Alceste and Iphegenia in Aulis. Schumann's Manfred Overture. Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture. This collection of performances with the Vienna Philharmonic includes 3 symphonies and 12 symphonic works on 3 CDs. Included is the exceptionally fine performance of the Schubert Symphony (worth the cost by itself) and a nice selection of other works. The sound is good to outstanding for the time the recordings were made; the performances are typical Furtwangler. thoughtful, insightful, and often profound. During the last years of his life, Furtwangler recorded a large number of works for RCA's HMV series in England with some of the very best sonics his recordings received; still.
