Notes and Editorial Reviews

Famous to the world as one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century, Wilhelm Furtwängler (1886–1954) preferred to be thought of as a composer. He wrote his Third Symphony in two versions, one with three movements and one with four. George Alexander Albrecht has become one of the most versatile conductors of his generation. He was awarded the Gustav-Mahler-Goldmedaille in 1985 for his performances of the complete works of Mahler and is the author of the book Die Symphonien Gustav Mahlers. He has put great effort into performing seldom-played works, including the compositions of Wilhelm Furtwängler, whose symphonies he is editing as the president of the Furtwängler Society. He has recorded Furtwängler’s First and Second Symphonies for Read more Arte Nova as well. Read less
