Raphael Kubelik, The Munich Symphonic Recordings

From 1961–79, Kubelík was principal conductor of theC 981 115
C 981 115
Symphony Orchestra of Bavarian Radio in Munich. He had found there his new musical home. He led the BR Symphony Orchestra to new heights, developing a unique sound and performance culture in a perfect diversity of repertoire from Baroque music up to free tonal Expressionism and to Karl Amadeus Hartmann and Benjamin Britten. As a musician, his prime directive was lyrical phrasing as well as clear and conscious articulation of the harmonic tensions and the vitality of the rhythmical and metric flow. He always had all these elements in mind, seeking to balance them. And Kubelík loved the gorgeous, lush sound, but never at the price of diaphanousness.
This CD Edition gives us a detailed overview about his legendary interpretations and is also a time document of his long time working period in the city of Munich.
