French & Russian Music / Sergiu Celibidache

Notes & Reviews:

Celibidache was without question one of the most important and original conductors in recent memory. He was a perfectionist who disliked what he perceived to be the synthetic sounds created in the modern recording studio, preferring the immediacy of the concert platform and the interaction with a live audience. Brought together here in four special volumes the Celibidache series celebrates the extraordinary legacy of his collaboration with the Müncher Philharmoniker portraying the excitement and atmosphere of their live performances. These recordings are unique to EMI Classics and were painstakingly mastered to retain and recreate the vibrancy and impact of Celibidache and the Müncher Philharmoniker's live performances. The Celibidache Series brings together his finest and critically acclaimed recordings of Beethoven, Bruckner, Brahms, Schumann and Faúre as well as many others.
