Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...the later EMI recordings with the Munich Philharmonic (in first-class sound) feature readings that, with their amazingly slow tempos and shockingly sustained intensity of orchestral playing over the long time-spans, better represent Celibidache's musico-mystic image." - Victor Carr, ClassicsToday.com

"These recordings belong equally to the orchestra, and even if they only demonstrated the players' dedication to their eccentric conductor, these discs would be worth hearing. The orchestra plays with 100 percent dedication, and often achieves astonishing results. This is particularly true of the Bruckner symphonies, where there are countless magical moments: the finale's coda in Symphony No. 4, the
Read more modified timpani parts at the end of the Fifth's "Scherzo", a granitic Ninth first movement, and all of the slow movements. The F minor Mass is another incredible performance, slower than humanly possible it would seem, but gloriously sustained nonetheless." - David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com
