Notes & Reviews:

Austrian-born conductor Hans Rosbaud (1895-1962), noted champion of contemporary and Austro-German late romantic-era music, features here with an orchestra he came to be associated with and much-identified late in his career, the Southwest Radio-Symphony, Baden-Baden, in these mid-1950's performances of four of Anton Bruckner's monumental symphonies. Includes the early Second, the lesser-known Fifth, the sublime Seventh, and the last fully completed, and towering, symphony, the Eighth.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Hans Rosbaud (1895-1962) was a remarkable human being. He grew up in an intellectual Austrian family. He studied Graeco-Roman culture and languages, played many instruments, and studied nuclear physics as a hobby. His younger brother, Paul, was a physicist and metalurgist as well as a scientific advisor for the Springer publishing company. He was also a dedicated anti-Nazi and undercover agent for the British in the Nazi era who helped the world learn about Nazi weapon development and helped squelch the rumors of an imminent German atom bomb. Hans, meanwhile, became a professional musician who stayed in Germany, resisted the Nazi authorities as best he could, protected musiciansfrom persecution, and helped keep the musical life of Muenster and then Strasbourg alive. His repertoire was wide, but he is remembered now primarily as a champion of what was then new music: Bartok, Hindemith, Stravinsky, and the Second Viennese School.
