That Hans Knappertsbusch (1888-1965) was one of the great German conductors of his day cannot be disputed, and from his extensive recorded legacy we are very pleased to present this selection of the master conducting music somewhat lighter in vein than he is largely remembered for. But this selection proves undoubtedly that Knappertsbusch was an equal master of the lighter repertoire as he was of the most serious masterpieces. In this set of performances Knappertsbusch conducts the great Vienna Philharmonic and the recording quality is remarkably fine for the period from the late 1950s. A truly historic and most welcome issue.
