 A conductor that left us too soon January 25, 2013 By G. Gill (Cincinnati, OH) See All My Reviews "Thomas Schippers always casted a striking figure on the podium of the Cincinnati Symphony (CSO). Now, not all interpretations were successful. But, his mastery with the works of Rossini was never bested during his lifetime and endures to this day. This Rossini album shows that mastery. The Stabat Mater (recorded after concerts in Cincinnati and at Carnegie Hall) have a decidedly leaner, more precise, "classical" approach then heard in his recording with the New York Philharmonic recorded some years earlier. The overtures are given the same, tight, approach. The "William Tell" is a relevation. Forget about the "Lone Ranger". This is a performance that is clear, precise, and, probably, a lot closer to actual performance practice then what the work has become over the last 60 years. The sound is a bit dated being taken from the original Quadraphonic tapes, a process Turnabout/Vox was never very successful with. So, are there better sounding recordings out there? Possibly. But, interpretively? I have yet to hear any." Report Abuse
