This 2CD set brings together for the first time all of Lorin Maazel’s Decca recordings of Strauss tone poems with the Vienna Philharmonic (he recorded Tod und Verklärung twice, the second time with the New Philharmonia Orchestra). All the recordings were made in Vienna’s Sofiensaal, and star VPO principals were soloists in Don Quixote and Der Bürger als Edleman. To these 1960s recordings is added the 1983 recording of Macbeth that Maazel made for Deutsche Grammophon, thereby offering a trio of literary-inspired works: Don Quixote (Cervantes), Don Juan (Lenau) and Macbeth (Shakespeare). The release forms part of the continuing exploration of Maazel’s Decca discography.

“Lorin Maazel gives a finely-paced account of Macbeth and draws sumptuous playing from the VPO … it goes without saying that the playing of the VPO is altogether glorious” Gramophone

“served up with great gusto … with the utmost in Viennese affetuoso rubato … The orchestral playing has a superb gloss and is full of subtle shadings, and the dynamic range is very wide indeed” (Rosenkavalier Waltzes) Gramophone

“[Maazel secures from the] splendid symphony orchestra a considerable quantity of splendid sound” (Don Juan, Tod und Verklärung) Gramophone

“Impressive accounts ranging from elegant precision in Don Quixote (cellist Emmanuel Brabec a superb soloist) to an over-the-top but thrilling Death and Transfiguration.” BBC Music Magazine

Tchaikovsky, Pjotr: Manfred Symfoni Og Andre Orkesterverk - Maazel, Lorin

“Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony has had precious few great recordings; luckily this is one of them … The finale has all the excitement, energy and crackerjack rhythmic thrust needed to make it really fly … a red-hot performance of Tchaikovsky’s Hamlet” Classics Today “Where excitement is concerned, there is no lack at all” Gramophone 

Ravel, Maurice & Debussy, Claude: Orkesterverk - Maazel, Lorin

“The new Daphnis glows resplendently: it is sumptuously recorded with splendidly bold detail and refinement of timbre while the Cleveland Orchestra play with virtuosity, impressive unanimity of ensemble and homogeneity of tone.” Gramophone
