Sublime Music-making

Kurt Masur conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra,
heard by BILL NEWMAN

 

It has been a long while since I heard Kurt Masur conduct a live concert. I have always regarded him as an eminent musician, and in the German repertoire he is the true successor of Furtwängler, Toscanini, Walter, Klemperer, Wand, Tennstedt and Sawallisch. Always totally focused on the music, this programme was beautifully chosen to elucidate his many musical gifts...
