Beethoven: Symhony No. 9. (CD - Tahra. Long hailed as one of the all-time greatest performances of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D minor, "Choral," Wilhelm Furtwängler's August 22, 1954, recording with the Philharmonia Orchestra is suffused with intense emotion, not least because this valedictory event preceded the conductor's death by a little over three months, and the performers were all acutely aware of.
Conductor – Wilhelm Furtwängler. Orchestra – Wiener Philharmoniker. Soprano Vocals – Irmgard Seefried. Tenor Vocals – Anton Dermota. Recorded at Wiener Musikverein 1953. 31 (incorrectly dated as May 30th). Other Versions (3 of 3) View All.
Tracklist: I. Allegro ma non troppo e un poco maestoso (18:38) II. Molto vivace – Presto – Coda (12:09) III. Adagio molto e cantabile – Andante moderato (19:49) IV. Finale. Furtwängler’s last Ninth: Wilhelm Furtwängler conducted Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony more than one hundred times.
Beethoven was Wilhelm Furtwängler’s guiding musical force. In his interpretations of the symphonies, the conductor generates irresistible dramatic momentum – and a constant sense of imaginative freshness – through the interrelationship of form, harmony, texture, rhythm and tempo. These recordings, all made in the late 1940s and early 1950s, in the Musikverein in Vienna and at concerts in London, Bayreuth and Stockholm, were newly remastered in 2010, bringing their sound more alive than ever before. The sound quality is not bad for the studio recordings, but is significantly worse in the live recordings of Symphonies 2, 8 and 9. No. 2 was so poor that I did not listen beyond the first movement. With 60+ years of stereo recordings since these recordings were made, a mono recording needs to be really special to garner attention.
