Beethoven Symphony No. 5 (Furtwangler) LP
Studio Recording On Vinyl LP!
Wilhelm Furtwangler conducts the Vienna Philharmonic for this studio performance
of Beethoven's Fifth.
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. No work appeared
more frequently in Furtwängler’s concert programmes than Beethoven’s Fifth.
Between 1918 and his death in 1954, he conducted more than a hundred
performances, including a superbly realized 1937 HMV studio recording with the
Berlin Philharmonic and this formidable studio remake with the Vienna
Philharmonic, further proof of his astonishing ability to penetrate a work to
its core yet preserve it as a living entity.
