Info zu Mendelssohn: Symphonies Nos. 4 & 5 / Octet: Scherzo

There is a 'rightness' to Munch's pacing which few other conductors have captured. The Scherzo from the Octet - one of Munch's last recordings with the BSO - provides a sparkling finale to a thoroughly enjoyable collection.

Performances of elegance and passion by one of America's premier orchestras in its golden age, under the baton of a master equally adept in the German and French branches of Romantic era repertoire.

„Because of necessarily selective reissue programs, we tend to remember Charles Munch as a specialist in French music. His tastes ranged more widely than that, though, and a bit of his non-Gallic repertoire does dribble back onto the market from time to time. Munch’s way with Beethoven was especially enjoyable; French air-checks from the 1960s reveal it to be consistently lean and fleet in what I suppose is a French manner, but it’s by no means lightweight. The same could be said of these 1957 (“Reformation”) and 1958 (“Italian”) Boston Symphony Mendelssohn recordings. The “Italian” Symphony, in particular, abounds with joie de vivre , and the more serious “Reformation” Symphony maintains gravity without excessive heaviness. The encore, Mendelssohn’s orchestration of the Scherzo from his Octet, is played exactly as you’d expect of a conductor and orchestra boasting expertise in Berlioz.“ (James Reel, FanFare)
