This important release contains the incomparable wartime performance of Beethoven's Choral Symphony conducted by Wilhelm Furtwangler in Berlin in 1942, by general consent one of the greatest accounts of this imperishable mastepiece ever recorded. On the second disc we have a vary rare rehearsal sequence of Beethoven's 'Leonore No 3' Overture with Furtwangler and Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra from 1948, together with a complete translation of what he says, with bar numbers added for those who would wish to follow the rehearsal with a score. We also offer three Beethoven Overtures, recorded at different times in Berlin, and some very rare items from concerts given in Buenos Aries by Furtwangler in 1950. The result is a major addition to the burgeoning repertoire of great conductors ofthe past on disc.
 
Due to a technical error the tracks on the inlay and in the booklet are incorrect. It should be:
- Altough Furtwängler conducted both Handel Concerti Grossi from Opus 6, Nos 10 & 11, at various concerts in his career 'The Handel Concerto Grosso in this collection is Opus 6 No 10 in D minor’ - Sorry for the erroneous information
- Track 10 on CD 2 is: José Maria Castro (1892-1964) - Overture to a Comic Opera (1934)
