Editorial Reviews

Product Description

LSO Live is thrilled to welcome Bernard Haitink back for his first recording with the London Symphony Orchestra since their internationally acclaimed Beethoven cycle in 2006. In his massive Eine Alpensinfonie, Strauss recounts an attempt to conquer the summit of an Alpine mountain. He infuses the score with numerous instrumental colors and rich combinations of sounds, evoking the images and events that take place on the trek. It was to be one of his final large-scale orchestral works and shows the last great German Romantic composer at the pinnacle of his art.

Review

EDITOR'S CHOICE - ''Another of those superb LSO Live recordings. The finest detail, colour and texture is apparent among the massed forces. This is a must-have demonstration-quality disc.'' --Gramophone Magazine

''While the splendour of the LSO's playing these days is no surprise, it's a remarkable phenomenon even so. Haitink's interpretation allows full scope for grand effects while keeping a tight rein on the works unfolding progress.'' --Classic FM Magazine

CD OF THE WEEK - ''Even among some of the finest and classic recordings this new one has something special about it. Haitink and the LSO offer us a reading that unfolds with an almost effortless logic.'' --BBC Radio 3 CD Review
