1. Product Details

No work appeared more frequently in Furtwnglers concert programmes than Beethovens Fifth. Between 1918 and his death in 1954 he conducted more than a hundred performances including a superbly realised 1937 HMV studio recording with the Berlin Philharmonic and this formidable studio remake with the Vienna Philharmonic in 1954 further proof of his astonishing ability to penetrate a work to its core yet preserve it as a living entity. Much of the musical action in the Fifth Symphony wrote Furtwngler lies in the metamorphosis of four-bar periods into two-bar periods and two-bar periods into single bars. He likened the rhythmic symmetry and harmonic power of Beethovens writing to a region through which complex but clearly defined lines of communication can be seen running in every direction. For Furtwngler the interpreter the symphony offered the thrill of high drama played out against a background of settled correspondences. For Furtwngler the thinker it was a paradigm of existence itself: an essentially orderly universe in which violent disruptive and seemingly unpredictable events take place. A clear case of music being imbued with meaning.This symphony sounds better than ever thanks to the new remastering from original tapes in HD 192kHz/24-bit done for our new Furtwngler box to be released very soon. The LP is a premiere to hear the benefit of this new remastering.
