Thanks for the Brahms, just listening, fantastic! Scherchen is like a medium, bringing to life the musical language. Some time ago I uploaded on another site his rehearsal of Beethoven 7 in Lugano (published on Tahra) It demonstrates for me impressively this medium like quality of Scherchen. In case you don't know it already, here is the link! http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZC5ZO7FH
And thanks for Kalinnikov. The marvellous First Symphony (much beloved by Toscanini and Reiner) in an incredible, fiery, unashamed, super-romantic version. Maybe the best Scherchen ever (with Mahler 7th)...
Hi Drger & Anon, thanks for your comments. I agree with you, two very important recordings; and I hope an occasion too for some blog visitors to discover this underrated masterwork (Kalinnikov 1, of course). Thanks a lot dear Drger for the link! I have this recording, as the famous rehearsal of LVB 5 with the same Orchestra. But can be very useful for other Scherchen admirers ;-)
Could You be so kind, to give other fileserver? Not Megaupload...Thanks!
