This album is not a reissue but a BBC recording of a concert, on an unspecified date at the Royal Festival Hall in London, with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. It features Jessye Norman's smooth, golden, sensual voice under the direction of Klaus Tennstedt, a conductor from the former East Germany (the GDR at the time) who suddenly came out of the shadows when he crossed to the West and became established in Hamburg in 1979. Spotted by the major figures, he began a new career, notably at the head of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, which appointed him principal conductor in 1983. He made a name for himself with a complete performance of Mahler's symphonies, which caused a sensation. That new impetus was soon shattered by poor health, putting an end to his career in 1995. He died near Kiel in 1998.

This recording, devoted entirely to Richard Strauss, includes a selection of five famous Lieder, sung in a particularly vibrant manner by an extremely inspired Jessye Norman, and beautifully rendered in an airy recording of superb spatiality. The rest of the programme consists of the suite Le Bourgeois gentilhomme, rather well Germanised by Strauss, who multiplies Lully's quotations and mockingly snide remarks. First performed in 1918, this stage music was not successful in the theatre but continues to be performed in concert. The highlight of the album is the final scene of Salomé sung by a simply imperial Jessye Norman. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Karajan conducts Sibelius' Sixth Symphony

In 1967 Herbert von Karajan, one of the most outstanding performers of Sibelius' music, recorded a memorable version of the Sixth Symphony. His most beautiful version of this work and perhaps also his most fascinating Sibelius recording.

Bernard Haitink, a Prophet in his Own Land

The great Dutch conductor who died recently at the venerable age of 92 proved the old adage wrong. Recognised by his peers throughout his own country from his youth, Bernard Haitink spent most of his vast career in the Netherlands, first conducting the Dutch Radio Orchestra and then the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for 27 years, with whom he made many legendary recordings for PHILIPS, DECCA and EMI CLASSICS, including more than 450 recordings of a wide range of composers, among which Bruckner and Mahler enjoy pride of place.

Herbert Von Karajan and The Grand Masters of Classical Music

30 years after his death, the Austrian Herbert von Karajan (Salzbourg 1908 – Anif 1989) still embodies the musical conductor like no other. In charge of the Berlin Philharmonic for 35 years (1955-1989), Karajan helped to elevate the orchestra to a level of global prestige. Throughout his career, he methodically diversified his repertoire: from Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner to Verdi, Wagner and Strauss…
