About this title


(Amadeus). Furtw ngler's recordings remain for many the standard by which all subsequent performances are judged. This study offers an overview of his career and his place in the mainstream of the German school of conducting, with commentaries on all his recorded performances.

From Booklist:

Widely regarded during his lifetime as the custodian of the German musical tradition, Wilhelm Furtw„ngler (1886-1954) is one of the greatest conductors of this century and one of the most controversial. His inward-looking, spiritually intense interpretations exert their spell through recordings to this day, yet his reputation has suffered from the stigma of his decision not to leave Nazi Germany and to continue his direction of the Berlin Philharmonic. Ardoin provides a useful overview of Furtw„ngler's career, but the backbone of his book is a study of the conductor's recorded legacy. Ardoin groups the recordings by musical period (baroque, classical, etc.), provides exhaustive information about Furtw„ngler's various recordings of each particular score, and uses excerpts from Furtw„ngler's diaries and correspondence to illuminate his interpretative approach to individual composers and scores especially well. Furtw„ngler's interpretations remain a basic gloss on the works of the German musical masters, and because they remain accessible in recordings, Ardoin's exhaustive study will be valuable in any library with patrons deeply interested in classical music.
