Notes and Editorial Reviews

Collectors of historical recordings on LP may recall “Karl Böhm in Dresden: A Phonographic Documentary Issued in Honor of his 85th Birthday”. This was a series of boxed sets issued on the German Electrola label, encompassing Böhm’s complete early recordings with the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, where he served as music director between 1934 and 1942, during the Nazi party’s heyday. The Dresden material occupies the first 14 CDs of Warner Classics’ big box devoted to Böhm’s early years, while the remaining five CDs are given over to Vienna Philharmonic sessions (1940-50) plus 1949 Philharmonia Orchestra Wagner selections with Kirsten Flagstad and Set Svanholm.

More often than not, the younger Böhm
Read more reveals himself as the classicist and disciplinarian we know from his later recordings. Indeed, Böhm’s 1941 Dresden Beethoven Ninth Symphony mirrors the taut linear trajectory of his powerful 1970 Vienna version, but with faster tempos. One draws similar parallels between Böhm’s early Brahms First, Second, and Fourth symphonies and his stereo counterparts. By contrast, the Vienna Mozart “Haffner”, “Jupiter”, and G minor K. 183 lack the profile and distinction of Böhm’s classic stereo Berlin recordings. The early Dresden Beethoven Leonore Overture No. 3 conveys drama and drive comparable to Böhm’s stereo traversal with the same orchestra, but with a wider degree of string portamento, as was the fashion. It’s doubtable, however, that the Böhm of the 1960s and 1970s would have let the Egmont Overture’s sloppy ensemble work pass.

Böhm’s ebullient Don Juan, Till Eulenspiegel, and Dance of the Seven Veils count among the 78-rpm era’s finest Richard Strauss interpretations, while the Bruckner Fourth and Fifth symphonies (both in their recorded premieres) not only unfold with steadiness and coherence but also attest to Böhm’s aversion to bloated sonorities and balances. But not bloated music; the Reger Mozart Variations and the Pfitzner Symphony were strictly for local consumption. When it came to short orchestral showpieces like the Reznicek Donna Diana Overture, Weber’s Oberon and Der Freischütz Overtures, or Strauss family waltzes, Böhm often fell flat, although the vividly incisive ensemble work in Theodor Berger’s Rondino giocoso is a notable exception.

Perhaps the concerto performances will hold special appeal in regard to the range of soloists, both familiar and obscure. Edwin Fischer’s 1937 Beethoven “Emperor” Concerto proves more impetuous, propulsive, and technically cleaner than his relatively sedate post-war remake with Furtwängler and the Philharmonia Orchestra.

Walter Gieseking’s limpid reserve in the same composer’s Fourth concerto lacks the added passion and inflection of his various broadcast versions, but his fingerwork in the Schumann A minor has an ardency and fire that he failed to recapture in his later studio recording with Karajan. Likewise, Wilhelm Backhaus’ all-encompassing technique and massive projection are captured at full capacity in the first and best of his three commercial Brahms B-flat concerto recordings. The Romanian pianist Lubka Kolessa’s (1902-1997) small-scaled Beethoven Third Concerto is not so much old school as old fashioned in its arbitrary phrasings and tempo adjustments, yet her inherent musicality holds your attention.

I was surprised and delighted by Wolfgang Schneiderhan’s 1940 Brahms Violin Concerto, where the then 25-year-old violinist fuses youthful élan and mature musicianship to more spontaneous and inspired effect than in his 1950s DG remake with Paul van Kempen and the Berlin Philharmonic. By contrast, it’s hard to listen past technical limitations in Jan Dahmen’s Mozart “Turkish” Concerto and Max Strub’s Beethoven, not to mention Max Zimolong’s thoroughly mediocre Mozart Horn Concerto No. 3.

Böhm’s long theater experience shines in numerous opera overtures and preludes, scenes from Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier and Daphne (Strauss dedicated the latter to Böhm), and, most importantly, the complete third act of Wagner’s Die Meistersinger, where Margarete Teschemacher’s agile, lieder-like approach to the role of Eva and Torsten Ralf’s controlled and well-characterized Walther stand out along with the Dresden Opera’s excellent chorus. The aforementioned Flagstad/Svanholm partnership in the Todesverkündigung scene from Die Walküre and the Act 2 Love Duet from Tristan und Isolde need no special pleading from these quarters, except that the former finds the singers in fresher voice for Böhm than in their 1957 stereo version under Solti.

According to producer Rémy Louis, who provided the informative annotations (I wish he also had included Böhm’s own colorful essay that appeared in the original LP boxes), each recording “has been painstakingly remastered in 24-bit/96kHz sound, using the best available sources.” However, back-to-back comparisons between the Electrola LPs and the Warner CDs in parts of the Bruckner 5th, the Meistersinger Act 3 Prelude, and “Emperor” Concerto Rondo lead me to suspect that the fine Electrola transfers were used as source material, rather than transferring the original shellac pressings anew. After all, there’s a difference between “best available” and “best existing”.

Not that collectors should complain about such an ample and wide-ranging survey of Böhm’s artistry as it emerged and developed during one of history’s most tragic and tainted eras. If you hesitated to shell out for the expensive “Böhm in Dresden” LP imports back in the day, bear in mind that the CDs are considerably cheaper by comparison.
