Notes and Editorial Reviews

Karl Böhm left a huge recorded legacy sharply focused on the central Austro-German classics and on 20th century heirs such as Berg and Strauss. For most of his career he was overshadowed by his DG stablemate, the salable Herbert von Karajan, whose smoothly textured interpretations were more heavily promoted. Both were opportunists who flourished under the Nazis and managed to land on their feet after the war. However, such integrity as Böhm possessed was directed to musical interpretations that eschewed idiosyncrasies and whose rough-hewn quality served the music without calling undue attention to the interpreter. That made him easy to take for granted, but it also stamped his performances as honest, invariably well-rehearsed and Read more well-played renditions of both the letter and the spirit of the music."

- Dan Davis, ClassicsToday.com, discussing Karl Böhm in a review of EMI 59444

-----

Conductor Leopold Hager (b. 1935) is considered to be an expert on the music of the first Viennese School, featuring the masterpieces of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. Hager has conducted numerous European orchestras to high acclaim and on this release with the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra, he brings forth the form and grace in the music of Mozart.
