Performer Conductor Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

While many historic editions focus on a performer, a less obvious but sometimes more artistically resonant choice is to focus on a conductor, one of those musical minds which shapes so much of what we hear. The Günter Wand Edition focuses on that great personality of the German music world, and this recording of Wand over the NDR Sinfonieorchester and Jorge Bolet in his final years is filled with great musical moments. Wand once said "The older one gets, the clearer one's vision of perfection becomes," a sentiment befitting his masterful interpretation of Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky.
