Notes & Reviews:

This record is part of a series of live recordings that the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (SWR) has made in the Liederhalle every year. All are characterized by a serious attention to historical playing style that has normally been associated only with period instrument orchestras. Norrington plays with the "pure tone" so much talked about by the old masters, before the arrival of twentieth century vibrato. This beautiful, warm tone was the normal sound of every orchestra from Bach's time to Mahler's; Beethoven, Schumann, Brahms and Wagner never heard a good orchestra play with vibrato.
