Furtwangler always regarded Beethoven’s ’Choral’ Symphony as a near-religious work and his performances of it were special occasions. This release is important because it has never been issued before outside Japan and came about because Furtwangler having scheduled a number of performances of Beethoven’s Symphony No.9 in January 1953, fell ill during the first concert which was abandoned. The concerts were then re-scheduled for the end of May 1953 with an extra performance thrown in for those who were at the uncompleted one. This took place on May 30th but is often confused with the final concert which took place a day later on May 31 and which has been released on a number of labels. ICA’s Ambient Mastering recreates the atmosphere of the concert perfectly.

 

“...the real May 30th 1953 account.   Furtwängler collectors will certainly want to experience the visionary fervour of this performance, perhaps at its best in the slow movement.”
 
International Record Review - November 2011
 

                     Performance *****          Recording ***
"This is an outstanding disc. it contains some of the greatest piano plying I have ever heard, and the most profound interpretation of is, for me, Beethoven’s greatest piano work, the Hammerklavier Sonata... any musical soul will be grateful for the issue of this historic recital."
 
Michael Tanner - BBC Music magazine - February 2013

“An invaluable document of an exceptional recital...If any single disc is going to convince sceptics why so many of us regard Richter as the greatest pianist of the second half of the 20th century, then it’s this extraordinary 80 minutes of music-making”
 
The Guardian - November 2012
