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...

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.
