The headnote is the essential part of this review, but I’m going to tell you what I think anyway. That is, I intended to do so, but the set starts off with Sibelius’s Seventh, a symphony and a composer that I have never taken to, so I shot off a disc to Richard A. Kaplan, our Sibeliusaurus . I know just enough to concur with his view that this is Sibelius light, quite a bit faster than Ormandy’s Philadelphia recordings, and not nearly as effective. Kondrashin’s performance of Shostakovich’s Fourth is startling. Right from Ormandy’s pioneering 1963 recording, the work has come across as an avant-garde blockbuster, far more adventurous than the composer’s other work of the 1930s. This performance brings it closer to the rest of the Shostakovich canon, from the Fifth Symphony on. One can now hear elements which eventually found their way into the Sixth, Seventh, Tenth, and even the Ninth Symphony. Moments of humor, not all of them bitter, raise their head. Yet, in the end, the Fourth loses none of its heart-stopping intensity. It’s almost as if Kondrashin has given us a new Shostakovich symphony to ponder and to enjoy.


CD 2: An?erl’s “Oxford” Symphony is light and joyous, marred only by a leaden Menuet. Colin Davis gives his countryman’s Falstaff a bright, fresh reading; this orchestra and hall do wonders for Elgar’s orchestral textures. De Leeuw’s Symphonies of Winds pays homage to Stravinsky. Scored for four of each wind and brass, with a single tuba, De Leeuw’s nine-minute work is more dynamically and structurally varied than Stravinsky’s and makes a powerful impression.


CD 3: Kondrashin races through En Saga ; shatteringly bright trumpets and silky strings are all wrong for the piece. Kaplanosaurus informs me that this is about as fast as it gets. Slow tempos and a lack of rhythmic incisiveness bedevil Wayenberg’s Rachmaninoff Rhapsody ; we can hear every note from the piano, but the piece sags. An?erl leads a lyrical Franck D Minor, keeping its textures clear despite some sloppy brass-playing—a common fault in the orchestra at this time. For whatever reasons, the recorded sound of the 1970–71 performances on this disc is thin and a bit harsh, a comedown from the high standards of the Concertgebouw’s 1960–1970 set ( Fanfare 29:2, p. 332, and Want List 2005).


CD 4: Walton captures Britten’s unique colors perfectly at the start of his Improvisations , and then takes off on a wild trip in his own vivacious style. It’s a surprise to find Viennese classicist Josef Krips (who would record Mozart’s final 20 symphonies with the Concertgebouw) leading this 1969 work, as well as Martin’s equally new, 12-tone-ish Second Piano Concerto, which Badura-Skoda—another Mozartean—plays brilliantly. The eternally fascinating Les noces receives a triumphant performance, in Russian, anchored by the magnificent Dorrow. The recorded sound is brilliant and clear throughout this disc, making this Les noces preferable to Craft’s equally fine reading on a duller Naxos CD.


CD 5: The Concertgebouw’s silky strings and brassy French horns, set in the hall’s vibrant acoustic, are ideal for the orchestral sections of Roméo et Juliette . Giulini’s relaxed performance is the antithesis of Munch’s high-tension reading. He reorders the dramatic sequence, building gradually to the Capulet’s Ball. Tadeusz Baird’s 10-minute Variazioni are at their best in delicate percussion and woodwind sections, getting a bit too noisy in brass-laden climaxes. Lutos?awski writes very French music to Jean-François Chabrun’s Woven Words , four fanciful “tapestries” which Pears sings with eloquence and passion; the lack of any texts in this set is costly here.


CD 6: The Brahms Double Concerto features the orchestra’s concertmaster and first cellist; their performances give nothing away to those by Szeryng and Starker, recorded five months earlier. Conductor Vonk churns out a few fussy details in the opening Allegro, but the finale rolls along gloriously. Philips recorded Das klagende Lied three days after this performance, but with two different soloists—only alto Proctor remained. The results suggest that the reasons were contractual rather than musical. Both are the revised two-movement version, lacking “Waldmärchen.” Although the Concertgebouw has always been a great Mahler orchestra, Haitink seems more intent on producing beautiful sounds than in capturing the dramatic essence of the piece.


CD 7: The Adagio introduction to the Fourth Symphony is one of the most difficult moments in all Beethoven to bring off. Bruno Walter did it best; van Otterloo hasn’t a clue. Once the Allegro vivace begins, however, this symphony plays itself. The Concertgebouw roars as if the Fourth were its predecessor or successor, and even that works. Hearing 26-year-old Itzhak Perlman play the Brahms Concerto reminds us what all the fuss was about.


CD 8: Jochum’s Bach Cantata is a far cry from period practice, but it gives Elly Ameling, at the height of her career, a chance to shine. The performance is nearly Handelian, a Rubens rather than a Rembrandt. Tuckwell’s Mozart-playing is tonally alluring but not very spirited, and the orchestra is thick and heavy. Leitner redeems himself with an exuberant “Rhenish,” six horns ringing through the Concertgebouw just as I remember them from a balcony seat earlier that week. Oddly, the notes don’t mention that he was Haitink’s principle teacher.


During the second half of the 20th century, the Concertgebouw—like most big-city symphony orchestras—was widely criticized for its too-conservative programming. Adding insult to injury, it ghettoized new music into separate concerts, labeled the Z Series so that its subscribers would never confuse it with the regular A, B, and C series. Nevertheless, it played many works by living Dutch composers, most of which appeared on records from Donemus, the Amsterdam music-publishing house. Contemporary works from other countries have been consistent features of these multi-disc historical sets, usually led by either the composer or an appropriate new-music specialist.


CD 9 is a treasure trove of such music, by Berg, Maderna, Boulez, Berio ( Calmo ), and Jan van Vlijmen. All of them bloom in the warm, sweet, yet clear acoustics of the Concertgebouw’s Grote Zaal.


CD 10: Kondrashin and Rostropovich deliver a brightly colored, deeply satisfying Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations . Who knew this could be such a wonderful piece? For once, the Amsterdam audience goes wild. Colin Davis’s Stravinsky Concerto in D is less finely articulated than his earlier recording with the English Chamber Orchestra, but the Concertgebouw strings are lovely. Kondrashin scores again with Scriabin’s Divine Poem ; the piece has seldom glistened so brightly, but it still comes across as watered down Tchaikovsky.


CD 11: Arrau and Jochum seem at odds in the Schumann Concerto; an inconsistent, sloppy performance is disguised by overly reverberant sound. Berio’s Chemins IV is an expansion of his Sequenza VII , now using a chamber orchestra—mostly one instrument on a part—to back the solo oboe. It has taken three hearings for me to sense a little music emerging from these 11 minutes of squeaks and squawks. Rudolf Escher’s dieci instrumenti are flute, oboe d’amore, clarinet, bassoon, horn, and string quintet. These four movements of symphonic chamber music offer delicious sonorities at the edge of tonality, spiced by such reactionary devices as hunting-horn and bird calls. A most intriguing stew, beautifully served by Reinbert de Leeuw!


CD 12: Reger’s op. 95 Serenade has had few recordings over the years, most led by Jochum: with the Concertgebouw in 1943, the Berlin Philharmonic a few years later, and now in 1976. Although its four movements run 38 minutes, it is one of Reger’s lighter orchestral scores, and this recording is the cream of the crop. Several works in this set celebrate important soloists within the orchestra. Vera Badings was Concertgebouw harpist for several decades; she and the orchestra under Lopez-Cobos give a brilliant performance of Ginastera’s popular, dynamic concerto. Jolivet’s Second Trumpet Concerto is exotic, exciting music but doesn’t offer the soloist much to sink his lips into, so guest artist Maurice André plays a thrilling encore: a Renaissance Danse by Claude Gervaise.


CD 13: Stravinsky’s Concertino never gets off the ground in this lackluster performance. Willem Frederik Bon’s orchestral and vocal writing are luscious, but we are lost without the text of Verlaine’s poem. Roberta Alexander is miked too closely, which obscures her words. Giulini’s Bruckner Ninth is a disappointment; his very slow tempos seem to throw the players off track. Horns struggle to maintain tone even in the opening phrase. The opening Feierlich, Misterioso is solemn but lacks mystery; the Scherzo is fine, and the Finale meanders.


CD 14: Harnoncourt employs a giant ensemble for the “Haffner” Symphony; in 1979 he was just beginning to bring period practice to the Concertgebouw. His interpretive eccentricities, however, are already on display: sections of the opening Allegro con spirito loll along sleepily, and his leap from p to f in the ninth measure of the finale limns Tchaikovskian ppp and fff . André Caplet’s 1923 Épiphanie is an exotic cello concerto offering lush lines for the Concertgebouw’s Jean Decroos, who does wonders with them. Kondrashin’s “Italian” Symphony closes this set, as sweet, bubbling, and easy-going as his Philips LP, taken down the previous day.


Like its predecessors in this now 100-disc series (including conductor boxes of Mengelberg, van Beinum, Haitink, and Chailly), there are a few near duplications of the orchestra’s commercial recordings. I am glad to see Kondrashin’s Divine Poem reappear, however, as the Etcetera LP and CD were not widely known. Not every performance here displays the orchestra at its best, nor is every recording pristine. Yet several marvelous, must-hear items (Kondrashin’s Shostakovich Fourth, his and Rostropovich’s Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations , all of CD 9, Les noces ) make this set as necessary as earlier volumes. In particular, it serves to expand the slim recorded legacy of Kondrashin’s 13 years in Amsterdam; his only studio recording was a Scheherazade , and 10 posthumously issued Philips LPs of 18 performances never made it to CD.
