Notes and Editorial Reviews

Rarely if ever have music festivals gathered together such a stellar array of names as those in Prades and Perpignan, thanks to the glory of Casal's name and the force of nature which was Alexander Schneider. This release of the Prades Festival is rarely heard and contains the most stunning performances of the 'Brandenburg Concertos', together with items from 'The Musical Offering'. And to hear Marcel Mule in the 'Second Concerto' will certainly delight all saxophone players! Soloists include Schneider himself, Marcel Tabuteau, John Wummer, Paul Tortelier, Bernard Goldberg, Eugene Istomin and Joseph Szigeti. Casals conducts the Prades Festival Orchestra. Volumes II and III will follow shortly. All are 2 CD sets.
