Notes and Editorial Reviews

This four-CD set presents a definitive mid-century showcase for Amsterdam's renowned Concertgebouw Orchestra, featuring beloved conductor Eduard van Beinum and a glittering array of legendary soloists. Principal conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra from 1945 to 1959, Van Beinum was acclaimed as a musician's musician, an artist of unassuming integrity who advanced the composer's vision above all. Recorded by Dutch Radio, the repertoire shows off the full range of the Concertgebouw's fabled warmth and richness, from Debussy's "La Mer" and Ravel's "Daphnis et Chloé" to Schubert, Schoenberg and great pieces by Dutch moderns Hendrik Andriessen and Rudolf Escher. The set's world-class soloists include Yehudi Menuhin in Mozart's Violin Read more Concerto No. 4, Zino Francescatti in Beethoven's Violin Concerto, Solomon in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 and Dinu Lipatti in Bach's D Minor Keyboard Concerto. The 136-page, three-language booklet features rarely seen photos of Van Beinum and the soloists and composers, as well as an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tim Page, a detailed producer's note and work-by-work annotation. Also included are detailed artist biographies from "The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians." Read less
