Description
Karl Böhm was a close friend of Richard Strauss and conducted the premiere of two of Strauss's operas, Die Schweigsame Frau (1936) and Daphne (1938), which is dedicated to him. In these 1963 performances filmed in the Musikverein, Böhm conducts Nikita Magaloff in the Burleske for Piano and Orchestra in D Minor; the tone poem Tod und Verklärung ("Death and Transfiguration"), Op. 24; and the monumental Ein Heldenleben ("A Hero's Life"), Op. 40, with Willi Boskovsky as violin soloist.

"A treasure.... Camera work is basic but effective black/white, audio adequate to convey the stunning performances. This Death and Transfiguration is important as it seems this is Böhm's only recording of this famous work with the VPO; the climax is thrilling indeed. And we do get a chance to hear the famous Vienna concertmaster, Willi Boskovsky, in Heldenleben's important violin solos. Nikita Magaloff is the splendid soloist in Burlesque.... Throughout, the conductor's firm control and understanding of the music are apparent, as is the orchestra's love and respect for him. An outstanding, important issue!"—Classical CD Review
