German Dances Archive
Certain to be among the most sought-after Stokowski discs, this collection of Mozart performances offers some truly rare and outstanding collaborations.
MOZART: Missa brevis in C Major, K. 220; Symphony No. 38 in D Major, K. 504 “Prague”; HAYDN: Nine German Dances -Soloists/RAI Orch./Lovro von Matacic – Archipel
Matacic extended his repute for explosive musical prowess at RAI concerts in Naples and Turin.
SCHUBERT: Piano Sonata in A Major, D. 959; Sixteen German Dances, D. 783/D. 366 – David Rubinstein, piano – Musicus
His Schubert Sonata conveys breadth and thoughtful, persuasive intensity.
SCHUBERT: 3 Impromptus, D. 946; Menuett and Trio in A, D. 334; Andante in C, D. 29; Piano Piece in A, D. 604; Adagio in B, D. 612; 17 German Dances, D. 366; Variations on a Theme by Anselm Huttenbrenner, D. 576 – Joshua Pierce, piano – MSR
I find his playing gossamer and direct, veering neither to the right nor to the left in terms of romantic emphasis.
