Notes & Reviews:
The sound documents of this edition, most of which have not been previously released, paint a comprehensive picture of the conductor between 1945 and 1957. This edition is exclusively based on certified sound documents, i.e. original tapes preserved today in the archives of Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (rbb) and the Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv Babelsberg (DRA).
American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The electrical excitement of the original broadcasts, the experience of all these musical novelties, reverberates across the decades and is given a strong boost by the conductor's wayward way with a score. The quality of the recorded sound varies with sources, which are typical of the era.
