Kathleen Ferrier’s premature death, on 8 October 1953 at the age of 41, took everybody by surprise due to the veil of silence behind which she had hidden her illness, whereby the public was not in the least prepared to this fatal outcome. To celebrate Kathleen Ferrier’s hundredth birthday, we are releasing the present SACD with excerpts from the Lied von der Erde broadcasted from the Salzburg Festival in 1949, with the Wiener Philarmoniker under Bruno Walter, as well as a very rare interview.

Maurice RAVEL: Daphnis and Chloë, Suite II(27.X.1950) - Richard STRAUSS: Vier letzte Lieder (Soloist: Annelies Kupper - 1.XII.1950)
Johann STRAUSS: Die Fledermaus, overture (19.I.1951) - Georg-Friedrich HAENDEL: Agrippina, overture (12.III.1954) - Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART: Rondo for piano and orchestre, KV 382 (Soloist: Edwin Fischer - 26.VI.1954) - Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks conducted by Eugen Jochum

«The Jochum Era» in Munich lasted ten years (1949-1959). Eugen Jochum managed to build a sound body that transformed a simple radio orchestra in an ensemble of worldwide reputation.
These sound archives are first-time releases for two reasons: they have never been released before but above all, no official recording of them exists.

This year is of Hermann Scherchen’s 120th anniversary and for that occasion we are releasing this album that includes only previously unissued recordings (1945 to 1965).
Scherchen (1891-1966) is an atypical case and certainly a unique case in the history of conducting because his activity was diversified and varied: in the first place he was a conductor of course, but also a composer, a pedagogue, a writer (he wrote three books the first of which, das Lehrbuch des Dirigierens was published in 1929 and is still a handbook of conducting used today), an editor (Ars Viva), a philosopher, consultant in acoustics and a pioneer of the radio. He travelled all over the world following his leitmotiv: “alles richtig machen, alles hörbar machen” (do everything right, make everything audible). This set will try to highlight the importance of this man whom Xenakis defined “an active visionary”, “a star of first-class dimension” in the twentieth century.
