Notes and Editorial Reviews
To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of noted German conductor Ferdinand Leitner, Profil Edition: Gunter Haenssler presents this wonderful 12 CD retrospective to honor his recorded legacy.Leitner became known primarily as a champion of opera, which is well represented in this collection, but the first four discs showcase his singular abilities as a conductor of orchestral repertoire, both symphonic and soloist-driven.Complete performances of operas by Cornelius, Wagner and Handel complete this fine tribute to Ferdinand Leitner - one of the greats.
