Notes & Reviews:

  • Historic concert recordings of the Berlin Symphonic Orchestra from 1955 and 1961, led by its first and chief conductor for 24 years, Carl A. Bünte.
  • Carl A. Bunte was a pupil of the mercurial Sergiu Celibidache and has led a distinguished international career.
  • The phantasmagorical Symphony Fantastique coupled with Richard Strauss' masterly and moody Death and Transfiguration make for a fascinating and compelling pairing.
