Description du produit
This series of DVDs will make the publicly broadcast BSO concerts from this era available for the first time since they were broadcast. This rare material represents some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and William Steinberg, and has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques. It is of exceptional musical interest and historic value.
The BSO s Music Director for just three seasons, Steinberg spent a great deal of time in the USA, having left Europe following Music Director positions in Cologne, Prague and Frankfurt. He also co-founded the Palestine Orchestra, later the Israel Philharmonic. His time with the BSO came at the end of his career following his position as the Music Director of Pittsburgh Symphony, which he held for over 20 years. Steinberg recorded a great deal of material with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra to great acclaim, but only a small selection of recordings with the BSO for DG. His recording of Holst s The Planets became a bestseller thanks to the calibre of Steinberg s interpretation and virtuosic playing from the BSO.
A live recording of Bruckner 8 with Steinberg and the BSO, from 1972, was issued as part of the orchestra s Centennial Celebration set, and has been described as a good, well paced and powerful reading, well played by the Bostonians . Steinberg s CD release of Mahler s Second Symphony on ICA Classics has received excellent reviews Gramophone described it as a startlingly direct statement of a score that is too often treated to extremes of mood and tempo and Classics Today as having moments that set a new standard in this music . Steinberg leads this Bruckner 8 performance from memory and with great subtlety and distinction in a sympathetic interpretation that provoked a rapturous response from the Boston audience. Richard Dyer in his booklet note describes the performance as compelling. Two of ICA s BSO DVDs featuring Charles Munch as conductor have been awarded the Diapason d Or in France s Diapason magazin
Recorded in 1962, Steinberg is the polar opposite of modern showbiz, inspiring primeval orchestral eruptions with the minimum of fuss as though the orchestra is mesmerised by him. Performance **** Picture & Sound *** --BBC Music Magazine, Sept'12

But in Steinberg's hands what music there is glows. The video is black and white, with occasional lapses in the visual portion of the CD. They are annoying but not crucial to enjoyment of the grandeur, the spirituality, and the enormous range of emotion the music embodies. Steinberg is deeply involved in the music, but spare in gesture. Steinberg has a sense of the whole musical architecture into which each measure and episode fits, giving the music an integrity that is often missing in performances of Bruckner Eighths that thrive on the Big Moments.
In my youth in Pittsburgh, I heard in person Steinberg and his Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra perform this symphony. I will refrain from comparisons of the Steinberg/Boston live concert with performances by other conductors and orchestras. For me, this one is a keeper, to which I will return both to experience and to learn from Bruckner. I rated this DVD a 5 despite the unfortunate cuts.
