Notes & Reviews:

At the end of the Second World War, the great conductor Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt founded the Sinfonieorchester des Norddeutschen Rundfunks. The orchestra's first guest conductor was Wilhelm Furtwängler who on October 27, 1951 conducted a Brahms concert that has since become legendary. This SACD reissue presents this unforgettable moment in music with the best possible recorded sound. The label's first release of this material was awarded a Diapason d'Or du Siècle.
