Editorial Reviews

To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of noted German conductor Ferdinand Leitner, Profil Edition: Gunter Haenssler presents this wonderful 12 CD retrospective to honor his recorded legacy. Leitner became known primarily as a champion of opera, which is well represented in this collection, but the first four discs showcase his singular abilities as a conductor of orchestral repertoire, both symphonic and soloist-driven. Complete performances of operas by Cornelius, Wagner and Handel complete this fine tribute to Ferdinand Leitner - one of the greats.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The widely diverse
German repertory may not appeal to all tastes. Of the works with which I am unfamiliar,
I am most interested in hearing the Cornelius Barber and Handel Tamerlano. The latter sounds attractive since Leitner's Julius Caesar (with Popp, Wunderlich, Ludwig, and Berry) is one of the best Handel opera recordings which I have heard. Even when conducting HIP forces such as the Cappella Coloniensis, Leitner avoids HIP DNA. The Mozart symphonies #s 31 and 36 listed on the cover were not included in this box. Instead the Mozart symphonies 28 and 35 plus The Impressario with
Barbara Kilduff and Edith Wiens were included. #s Haydn symphonies #s 6-8 are still available and among the best (see my review). Also valuable are collaborations with Monique Haas (Mozart concerto #23),
Wolfgang Schneiderhan (Mozart VC #5 and Bruch opus 26) and Rudolf Koeckert (then the BRSO
concertmaster) in the Beethoven Romances. I admit to being a non-Wagnerian, but there is what
sounds like a perceptive review on Amazon of the Parsifal performance. With Bernhard Klee,
Leitner remains iconic without a comparable reputation in the US. Kappellmeisters they are not.
