In the past couple of years, I have really enjoyed exploring the recordings of conductor Karl Munchinger. You can imagine my delight then, when the newest batch of Australian Eloquence reissues featured five volumes of Romantic Overtures, one of which was dedicated to performances by Munchinger. "Volume 3" is a two-disc set -- the first CD showcases works by Weber, Schumann, Schubert, Cherubini and Mendelssohn, while the second focuses mostly on Beethoven, but also concludes with two mid 50s mono tracks, Schumann's "Manfred" and Gluck's "Alceste," both with L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. (The other selections are all in stereo with the Vienna Philharmonic.) For the serious collectors out there, please be aware that the 1975 account of Schubert's "Die Zauberharfe" Overture is the very same one contained on Schubert: Rosamunde (see my review), but as that was the title that introduced me to Munchinger, I can't complain too much about duplication. The real treat here for me are the Beethoven performances -- it is so refreshing to hear Munchinger's light and airy treatments of the "Leonore" and "Egmont" Overtures, and fascinating to compare the same orchestra on the same pieces under the baton of Karl Bohm or Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt. One final nerdy note, usually the album art for these Eloquence reissues has nothing to do with the old LP jackets, but here they have used the same painting that graced the Decca original -- nice touch.
