Notes and Editorial Reviews

These are real performances, with minimal editing, and all the flow, coherence and occasional imprecision which that implies. Jochum’s tempi are flexible and well-judged, apart from a rather hurried first movement in the Third Symphony, and the tempo relationships within movements are always natural – the finale of the Fourth Symphony is a model here. The sound of the Berlin PO (very much Furtwängler’s orchestra at the time) is muscular, with vibrant strings, characterful woodwind and finely honed internal balance. To be enjoyed.
