The recording of these overtures (along with the second volume of Wagner works under the same Klemperer Legacy title) are by no means in the style and manner that Wagner would have prefered. Wagner always complained that his music was performed too slow and he would have undoubtedly leveled the same charge here. That does not automatically mean that the composer is correct and the conductor is wrong. Quite the contrary. The performances here leave a powerful impression on the listener. Klemperer pushes the orchestra to the limit with great authority. Unlike many other Wagner conductors, Klemperer does not suppress his string section at all (many conductors let their brass sections drown out the strings). This is most noticeable in Der Fliegende Hollander and Tannhauser. These are both a tour de force. Klemperer lets the his strings soar to incredible heights and the result is terribly exciting, and yet he is still able to have them work harmonously with his brass. The prelude to Act 3 of Lohengrin is a powerful brass erruption but again the strings can be vivedly heard. The effect is still the same. The recordings of the works from Meistersinger are interesting in the fact that they follow Klemperer's traditional playing style. They are slower than most performances and the orchestra plays like a large chamber group. However, they do not loose their power. As the title of the review suggests, buy this before the publisher makes it unavailable. EMI is notorious for slashing great recordings. This is certainly a great one.

HASH(0x93a96954) étoiles sur 5 AT LAST, KLEMPERER'S WAGNER CONCERTS IN CLEAR RECORDINGS 21 janvier 2002
Par R. Q. Hofacker Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com

What a difference! The original stereo LP pressings of these
grand performances by Otto Klemperer and EMI's Philharmonia
Orchestra were a big disappointment for me when I bought them in
1972. The problem seemed to lie in the mastering, so even the
most fabulous pressing technology could not reproduce the
original sound. I bought several other vinyl LP pressings (1985)
issued by EMI's German branch, which were labeled "Direct Metal
Mastering" and "Digitally Remastered," but those still lacked
the depth and range of other Klemperer/Philharmonia recordings
in my collection. But in 1998, at last, somebody at EMI
succeeded in remastering and transferring the original analog
tapes to compact disc, using 24-bit digital technology to capture
the true open sound of Kingway Hall in London, where these
recordings were made between Feb. 23rd and March 2, 1960.
According to the liner notes in a handsome booklet issued with
the two vinyl LPs in 1960, "the recordings were made
simultaneously for the stereo and mono versions. Two separate
systems of microphones and tape recorders were used,
necessitating of course, separate control rooms and different
engineers -- a penalty imposed on the record industry by
progress, in the form of stereo recording. The technique for
recording the stereo version involved the use of crossed and
spaced microphones. That is to say, one pair of microphones
linked together to cover the full width of the orchestra with
supplementary microphones placed to capture the sound of various
sections. This technique produces a close approximation to the
sound actually heard at a concert in the best seat of an
auditorium." (I wonder whether the mono tapes were combined
with the stereo tapes in the remastering for CD?)
The LPs did not live up to the hype. The best thing about
the Angel Stereo 3610 2-LP album was the box itself and the
fascinating 12-page (full-size) booklet, "specially produced to
mark the occasion of the 75th birthday of Dr. Otto Klemperer,
May 14, 1960." Included in the booklet was a reproduction of
the handwritten compliment by Wieland Wagner (dated March 15,
1960) in which he noted: "Classical Greece, Jewish tradition,
medieval christendom, German romanticism and the realism of our
time are all combined in this man and make Klemperer the
conductor a unique artistic phenomenon." Wieland Wagner was
Richard Wagner's grandson.
Because Richard Wagner was a virulent and outspoken
anti-Semite, his grandson's praise probably caused him to spin
in his grave. But Klemperer, despite his birth as a Jew and his
persecution by the Nazis in 1933, held no compunction about
performing Wagner's music. Born in 1885 in Breslau, Klemperer
converted to Catholicism in 1919 at age 34 when he married soprano
Jennie Gaissler, a Catholic. However, he held dual West German
and Israeli citizenship when he died at age 88 on July 6, 1973 in
Zurich, Switzerland. He is interred in Zurich's Jewish cemetery.
Klemperer's career was actually divided into three careers:
1909 to 1933 in Czechoslovakia and Germany, 1934 to 1954 in the
U.S. and Europe, and 1954 to 1973 in Great Britain as the
principal conductor of The Philharmonia Orchestra.
At the age of 70, in 1954 Klemperer was sought out by the
legendary EMI record producer, Walter Legge, to head up a
world-class orchestra Legge was assembling for EMI. The
Philharmonia became Klemperer's third career. By this time,
Toscanini and Furtwängler were dead, so Klemperer became the
dominant interpreter of the Austro-German repertoire, recording
in stereo many works by Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms,
Mendelssohn and Mahler. The Wagner recordings on this CD precede
his 1968 recording of "Der fliegende Holländer" ("The Flying
Dutchman"), regarded by many critics as one of the "Great
Recordings of the Century." And why not? Klemperer's work with
Wagner's scores stretched over more than 50 years. Actually,
his career(s) spanned the development of recording technology all
the way from early acoustic recordings, through the 78-rpm
shellac era, and on through the mono vinyl LPs to the stereo LPs,
just missing the introduction of digital recording.
These recordings have been issued and reissued several times,
but I wouldn't count on them being permanently available in the
catalog. I recommend them most highly, especially if, like me,
you bought the original LPs and were disappointed in those.

Klemperer was Jewish, but this certainly did not affect his conducting of wagner, which is very good indeed. His Flying Dutchman and Tannhauser overtures are incredibly exciting and quite frankly my favorite renditions of each. The Lohengrin overture is rapt and shimmering, and his act III intro is not a mad dash to the finish line as most conduct it, but still a joyous introduction to the wedding march that follows. The Meistersinger excerpts are truly astonishing. His overture is possibly the slowest ever recorded, but nothing is lacking. He even pays attention to counterpoint and highlights it where his colleagues like Solti race through and aim for a kind of orgasm in every bar. Listen to the place where wagner has the meistersinger theme played with the prize song melody with the second violins doing their own thing. Amazing how clear it is. His dances certainly do that as well. very good recordings.

As many others, I normally do not care for Wagnerian "bleeding chunks", but when performed as wonderfully as in these fabulous performances, I can more than merely accept them. To pick out some examples, the Meistersinger Prelude is taken surely at the broadest pace I have ever heard, but there is a lightness of touch and sunniness to the interpretation that is absolutely irresistable. Teh Tannhaeuser Overture is overwhelmingly majestic in the Pilgrims' Chorus and volatile in the Venusberg sections. Siegfried goes off on a surprisingly swift Rhine Journey, and the Funeral March has the kind of cataclismic force that Knappertsbusch brought to his famous 1951 Bayreuth performance. The Siegfried Idyll is performed in its original chamber group version, and has more charm than any other I have heard. And the Tristan Prelude and Liebestod has an urgency and sheer erotic impulse that not even Furtwaengler surpassed. These wonderful renditions make one regret that Big Otto never recorded any of the later Wagner Operas complete.

Wagner's Overtures demand dramatic balance, majestic sobriety, frenzy, exultant passion, and in most ocassions, incadescent fury.

Klemperer doesn't make justice both Overtures: Rienzi and Meistersinger. I found both sloppy and heavy-handed. There's an excess of bombastic expression and a certainly a bit of spasmodic outburst of energy.

The rest of the album is worthy to listen.

Two examples that could illustrate Rienzi's sound can become?. Go for Erich Leinsdorff and The Philharmonia and for Meistersinger, the unsurpassed pinnacle: Fritz Reiner at the front of the Pittsburgh Symphony.
