Notes & Reviews:

These performances date from 1955, a period when Klemperer was at his most authoritative and spent a number of seasons guest conducting in Cologne. He became principal conductor of the Philharmonia in London in 1959 following the departure of von Karajan for Berlin. Both Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream and Beethoven Symphony No.8 are sourced from the original WDR tapes and have been superbly re-mastered. They appear for the 1st time here on CD.

Notes & Reviews:
