Notes & Reviews:

The eminent German conductor Eugen Jochum made his debut with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra in 1926 in a program which included Bruckner's seventh symphony. In the same year, he was appointed conductor at the Kiel Opera House, where he conducted seventeen operas in his first season. In 1934, Jochum succeeded Karl Böhm as musical director of the Hamburg State Opera and the Hamburg Philharmonic. Throughout the Nazi era, Hamburg remained, as Jochum put it, 'reasonably liberal,' so that he was able to keep his post despite refusing to join the party. After World War II, Jochum became the first chief conductor of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. During the "Jochum Era" (1949-1959), the conductor transformed a simple radio orchestra into a fi rst class ensemble of worldwide reputation. The recordings on this CD are first-time releases taken from the original masters. Tracks include Strauss' Four Last Songs with Annelies Kupper and Mozart's Rondo for Piano and Orchestra with Edwin Fischer.
