BRAHMS

Symphony No. 1

Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR / Klaus Tennstedt

STADTTHEATER, GÖPPINGEN, 24 SEPTEMBER 1976

MARTINU

Symphony No. 4

Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR / Klaus Tennstedt

FUNKSTUDIO, VILLA BERG DES SDR STUTTGART, 26 APRIL 1973

These two performances featuring Klaus Tennstedt (1926–1998) and the Stuttgart RSO were separated by only forty-one months, and yet Tennstedt’s life changed dramatically during this short period. In 1971 he escaped from the German Democratic Republic and by 1973 he had settled at the small opera house in Kiel. But by spring 1974, he had appeared in North America with the Toronto Symphony and by December of the same year, he conducted the Boston Symphony in an all-Brahms programme. By 1976, he was established in both Europe and in the United States as a master of the core Austro-German repertoire.

The Martinu Symphony No.4 typifies Tennstedt’s interest in more obscure repertoire during his early period in Germany. It is given a highly charged performance in this 1973 ‘live’ studio recording. The Martinu is a new addition to Tennstedt’s discography. It also highlights the work of this lesser known but very important composer (a set of the complete Martinu Symphonies won a Gramophone Award in the Orchestral category in 2012).

The live 1976 concert performance from Göppingen of Brahms’s Symphony No.1 demonstrates Tennstedt’s great affinity with this symphony in a dramatic and urgent reading. It is far superior to his studio account made in 1983.

This recording marks a new and exciting relationship between ICA Classics and the SWR in Stuttgart.

This is the first release of this material outside Japan.

This is an overwhelming experience. Tennstedt’s studio recordings of Mahler are impressive, but his concerts with the LPO at the Festival Hall were something different - among the greatest performances I have ever heard’ (Sunday Times review of ICAC5033, Mahler: Symphony No. 3)
