"Amazing recording!!! This one has become one of my favorite versions (maybe even the most). It's wonderfull to hear a soloist and orchestra play together that well; they're all part of one big spirit. This version reveals a lot of details (even the finest), while the big/main line isn't lost at all. (…) From the deapest bass-lines of the basses to the heighest hights; it sounds very natural and clear! Totally recommended!" ~sa-cd.net

January 8th, 2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the death of Carl Schuricht. This release of two live recordings made in 1961 and 1962 pays tribute to a renowned conductor who was only to enjoy great international fame in his old age – as one of the last representatives of the generation of old German conductors, and as a master of the classical and romantic repertoire Absolute faithfulness to the musical text and youthful vigour right up to old age: Carl Schuricht (1880-1967), one of the last representatives of the generation of old German conductors during the post-war decades, focused on clear structures rather than romantic pathos or personal eccentricity.
