Notes & Reviews:

When conductor Hans Knappertsbusch first met the Vienna Philharmonic he only rehearsed the first part of the program with the musicians. When asked why he wasn't rehearsing the second half, he said "You know the work, I know the score." From then on the orchestra and its conductor shared a special and unique bond. Watch their relationship live on DVD, in this collection of the group's collaborative performances.

Ritmo
Three sacred monsters is here: the conductor Hans Knappertsbusch, singer Birgit Nilsson and pianist Wilhelm Backhaus, at a concert in 1962. None of the three is at the level that would be required in the case of who it is. Kna only makes a plausible version of the Leonora Overture III, and runs very boringly quarter of Beethoven himself a very absent-minded enough and stylistically Backhaus. Of course I should clarify: the first I have a very high artistic concept, but the second always seemed a very mediocre pianist.
