> Reviewed in the current isue of Fanfare by Henry Fogel (who certainly knows more about the recordings of Furtwangler than anyone else I have read besides Ardoin). Unfortunately he finds the sound when compared to duplications in the Orfeo set and the set issued by the Berlin Philharmonic itself seriously wanting and that also includes private issues by Furtwangler Sound and Pristine. One would think the issuing company would have good results but after the mess EMI has made from many of their reissues I guess it shouldn't be a surprise.
But setting your expectations of what Decca-Universal does based on EMI-Warner doesn't make much sense, does it?
Pristine has a Bruckner 4 that purports to be from the 22nd (Stuttgart), but it's the Munich performance from a week later. I hope that wasn't a reference.
