Notes & Reviews:

Berlin born Hans Schmidt-Issserstedt was steeped in the German tradition. He formed the NDR Orchestra (Northern German Radio) in Hamburg which he conducted for 26 years. He made his US debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1961 and toured the US with the NDR Orchestra in 1969 as well as Europe and Japan. These rare BBC Symphony Orchestra performances from 1971 in excellent stereo represent the very best of Schmidt-Isserstedt's art with strong and passionate performances of Weber and Brahms with one of the few contemporary works he liked, Tippett's Fantasia Concertante on a Theme of Corelli.
