 Quality Recording -- Solid but Disappointing Perf October 9, 2013 By William Muthig (Milan, OH) See All My Reviews "As a newcomer to recordings under the BR Klassik label, I didn't know what to expect from this collection of symphonies. The quality of the recordings is excellent. They are a clean, clear, and a well balanced presentation of the material. This collection was purchased because the orchestra was being led by Lorin Maazel. While the performances are solid, they were also a little disappointing. The playing of the early works seemed labored as did the first movement of the 9th. This may be due to use by Maazel of the Nowak editions. To be fair, this listener has not been fond of the Nowak editions and these recordings do nothing to change that opinion. One other observation is that these recordings were made with audiences present. Except for the 9th Symphony, the people in the audiences are not really heard until the applause at the end. The Munich listeners were very respectful of the works and the performers." Report Abuse
