Jörg Faerber

Biography

Born: June 18, 1929; Stuttgart, Germany  
Tainted by a long association with a budget label, Jörg Faerber is too often wrongly assumed to be just another workaday German conductor leading his orchestra in routine sight-reading sessions. In truth, Faerber long ago distinguished himself as a perceptive interpreter of Baroque and other music, although not in a historically informed style.

He quickly built it into a highly regarded ensemble in Europe, one that flutist James Galway later declared to be his favorite chamber orchestra. Faerber began a long association with Vox in the 1960s, prolifically recording eighteenth century and later repertory. That label's habit of making hasty recordings with second-rank provincial orchestras sullied the conductor and orchestra's reputation among people who didn't bother to listen to the often vibrant performances. Later recordings for such major labels as EMI and RCA, mainly backing up such soloists as Maurice André and James Galway, helped raise Faerber's international profile and reputation. He continued to tour with the orchestra into the early years of the twenty-first century. Read less
