Notes & Reviews:

Conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler requires no introduction. His recordings of Wagner and Beethoven remain among the most coveted and controversial ever committed to disc. As with many of Furtwängler's other symphonic works, the Symphony No. 2 is very rarely performed, and has been the subject some of harsh critical attacks, though many of those may have been politically, rather than musically motivated. The Second Symphony is an expansive score, heavily indebted to the late-Romantic style of Anton Bruckner and Richard Wagner. The present recording, made in the last year of the maestro's life, is made even more valuable as his musical Last Will and Testament.

Notes & Reviews:
