Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

The Decca ansermet legacy on eloquence continues to garner the highest plaudits from publications all around the world and the latest batch presents the maestro's recordings of four key austro-German romantics: Schubert, Weber, Mendelssohn and Schumann. This 2-CD set brings together all of ansermet's Schumann recordings for Decca. Ansermet's Schumann is generally unforced and relaxed, with all but the piano and cello concertos making their first international appearance on CD. In the piano concerto - a live radio broadcast recording with lipatti, newly remastered for this release - lipatti seems to drive the orchestra to new levels of excitement. As with many of the (relatively few) concertante works ansermet recorded, the soloists are drawn from the orchestra - as is the case with Edmund Leloir, principal horn of the osr from 1952-77, for the adagio and allegro, originally for horn and piano and, for this recording, orchestrated by ansermet. Maurice gendron, soloist in the cello concerto, was one of jacqueline du pré's teachers. The Schumann concerto was one of his specialties; he frequently played it when he was invited to appear with orchestras.
