After 1958 Dimitri Mitropoulos made guest appearances with the leading orchestras throughout U.S.A. and Europe. He died on November 2, 1960, during a La Scala rehearsal of Mahler's Third, so this performance of Mahler's Eighth Symphony in August 1960 may well be the last he recorded. This CD is the first authorised release of his 1960 Salzburg Mahler Eighth live from the original Austrian Radio tapeIt has the great interest of being the only testimony of the conductor who did not record this work commercially.
Dimitri Mitropoulos was a Mahler pioneer. Here is his famed Salzburg Eighth Symphony. Faustian striving and the conjuration of the ‘Creator Spiritus’ in 'Symphony of a Thousand’ were obsessions of the conductor. His performance at the Salzburg Festival proved an overwhelming experience for all who were present, its poignancy enhanced by the fact that following his premature death it was his final concert in Salzburg. A memorable occasion recording a performance touched, especially in Part II, with true greatness. Also a fine memorial to an unduly neglected conductor who, on this night, had only weeks to live.


NOTA : Orfeo credits the Wiener Philharmoniker and the "Konzertvereinigung" of the Wiener Staatsopernchor, in the context of the Salzburg Festival — the other versions credit the Vienna Festival Orchestra and Chorus (Wiener Festspielorchester, Wiener Festspielchor), so in the context of the Vienna Festival...

In your panoramas...
Picasso, when painting meets music

Picasso's modernist genius swiftly stretched beyond the pictorial and spread into music and dance, two art forms with which the Spanish painter always maintained a close relationship, to the point of influencing composer friends he met along the way.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.
