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.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 Years of Freedom

Italian violinist Fabio Biondi – famous especially for his interpretation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with his orchestra, Europa Galante – refuses to be compartmentalised. We take a look back at the career of a musician blessed with a supple mind and an extraordinary talent for the Baroque violin.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.
