Notes & Reviews:

Every concert conducted by the great Wilhelm Furtwängler was a unique and unrepeatable experience. His improvised touches added a vibrancy and immediacy that surprised audiences - and sometimes even the orchestra. During the difficult post war years he conducted operas more than concerts, leaving few performances of Mozart or Haydn symphonies for posterity. This release presents rare recordings of Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro Overture, Symphony No.40 and Haydn's Symphony No.94.
