Notes & Reviews:

A new treasure from the archives of the Southwest German Radio! Haenssler CLASSIC is proud to present a rare historical recording of the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra with Lorin Maazel from 1958. His program includes Beethoven's often neglected Second Symphony, the Coriolan Overture and Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra. It's an extraordinary experience to hear how Maazel builds the suspense and consistency in these interpretations from early in his career. An important recording both for Maazel fans and those who want to become one.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Coriolan is powerful, stirring, and well defined, with incisive dotted rhythms. The Bartok was written in 1943 for the Boston Symphony, so it is possible that this was the SRO's first encounter with it. Maazel's interpretation comports well with the Beethoven performances - strong powerful, fast, and dramatic, with few mannerisms. The Bartok makes some interesting points, as well. The good monaural sound reminds us that monaural can produce very good string tone.
