Fritz Busch & Nicolai Malko in Copenhagen (1932-1934)





The Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra had very important guest conductors from '30s to '70s. Among them: Nicolai Malko, Fritz Busch, Eugene Ormandy, Rafael Kubelik and of course (1968-1976) Sergiu Celibidache.

And the "parterre de roi" of great soloists is no less impressive: only in this CD we can listen for Piatigorsky (Dvorák Cello Concerto, 1st mov - what a performance), Horowitz (Tchaikovski 1, 3rd mov), Serkin (Beethoven 4, 1st mov), Nathan Milstein, Wanda Landowska.

But the real "stars" are Fritz Busch (listen for his Carnival overture) & Nicolai Malko; two outstanding and underrated conductors.

Forgotten treasures very well conserved and restored. Don't miss this rarity!

Thank you! Danacord later combines this disc into a 6CD set of early radio archives. Do you want that set?

Thanks for this! You were right about the Carnival Overture. Busch also has a live recording of the Mendelssohn 'Italian' (1950) that I love.

OMG, dear Invocation... WOULD BE GREAT! That box contains amazing things.
Above all more Malko and Egisto Tango: A name - a myth, as first conductor of Bluebeard's Castle! Never heard a single chord :-) of his conducting, until now...

I think I have some more recordings by Malko, one of my personal favorite, and Tango. Need to check the vault:) I will rip and upload the complete set for you soon.
