Notes & Reviews:

One of the great conductors of the twentieth century, Felix Weingartner was a student of Franz Liszt. From 1908 to 1911 he was the principal conductor of the Vienna Hofoper, succeeding Gustav Mahler and he retained the conductorship of the Vienna Philharmonic until 1927. Weingartner was the first to make commercial recordings of all nine Beethoven symphonies. His conducting style contrasted with the romantic approach of many of his contemporaries; Weingartner insisted on playing the music as written. These two Beethoven recordings with the Vienna Philharmonic come from his extensive discography that he recorded between 1910 and 1940. The recording features Symphony No.8 and Weingartner's own orchestration of the Hammerklavier Sonata.
