Mendelssohn: Symphony No.3 / Bartók / R. Strauss (Wiener Philharmoniker, Dohnányi)
Rudolf Buchbinder (piano)
Christoph von Dohnányi
A versatile and highly respected conductor, Christoph von Dohnányi has pursued a remarkable career both in Europe and the United States. His work has always been characterized by the greatest artistic integrity and uncompromisingly high standards, qualities that emerge to fascinating effect from a recording which, dating from 1977, is of almost historical value. The piano soloist is Rudolf Buchbinder, who can likewise look back on a career of exceptional distinction. His performances of the German and Austrian repertory have set new standards. In his hands, Strauss's Burleske is one of the undoubted high points of this concert.
