Editorial Reviews

The Czech conductor Rafael Kubelik is considered to be one of the greatest conductors of the second half of the 20th century. This collection contains exceptional recordings from 1948 until 1959 with orchestras, which have played an important role in his artistic life: the Czech Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Kubelík was deeply rooted in his home-country and the composers of the Bohemian-Moravian tradition such as Janacek, Smetana, Dvo ák, and Martinu were very dear to him. Here you will hear, for example, Smetana s cycle 'My Country', which embodies the Czech feeling of national pride like no other musical work, and Dvorak's Symphony 'From The New World'. Kubelík was an admirer of Mahler and a pioneering interpreter when it came to the works of this composer. In an interview he said: 'Mahler is a composer, at least for me, who maybe has the strongest heart among all composers . The early sound-documents in this collection prove why Kubelík is rightly considered to be one of the greatest interpreters of Mahler in musical history. Kubelík was also a dedicated fighter for the musical avant-garde of his time. 'One cannot love Beethoven, if one does not know there is a Hindemith in the 20th century, and we cannot understand Bach entirely, if we don't know the music of Schönberg', was his conviction. Compositions by Schönberg and Hindemith are presented in this compilation next to works by Brahms,Mendelssohn, Mussorgsky, Bartok and Bruch.
