UPC: 747313907083. Conducted by Ferenc Fricsay.

This release contains a live recording, with Fricsay conducting his core repertoire. The rarely performed "Caboclo" by B.A. Zimmermann is heard here for the first time on a recording under his baton. This is a release of greatest relevance, documenting the work of Ferenc Fricsay, who died young after long illness. Ferenc Fricsay was born in Budapest in 1914 and died in Basel in 1963. After standing in twice at the Salzburger Festspiele at the end of the 1940s for colleagues who had been taken ill, Fricsay was first engaged in Berlin and later in Munich and was a busy concert, opera, radio and record conductor. He had an extraordinary feel for the specific requirements of sound-carrier productions. Whenever he was involved in such projects he exercised meticulous care and showed immense technical know-how. The Berlin radio symphony orchestra as well as the Berliner Philharmoniker valued him highly as a guest conductor.
