Eugene Ormandy - The Columbia Legacy

The Columbia Legacy

Künstler

Die über 40 Jahre dauernde Zusammenarbeit zwischen Eugene Ormandy und dem Philadelphia Orchestra gehört zu den schillerndsten und längsten Verbindungen in der Geschichte der klassischen Musik. In dieser einzigartigen Edition erscheinen auf 120 CDs sämtliche Monoeinspielungen aus der Zeit von 1944 bis 1958 für das Label Columbia. Sie spiegeln in der sich verändernden Covergestaltung auch einen wichtigen Abschnitt der Schallplattengeschichte wider. Ormandy, ein Meister orchestraler Brillanz und Klangfarben und auch als exzellenter Begleiter geschätzt, kreierte mit seinem Orchester den berühmten "Philadelphia Sound". Mit fünf Jahren war er, der eigentlich Jenö Blau hieß, der jüngste Geigenschüler der Königlichen Musikakademie von Budapest, wurde mit 17 Jahren dort zum Professor ernannt und wanderte 1921 in die USA aus, wo er seinen Namen änderte. Eugene Ormandy ist hier mit einem beeindruckenden Repertoire zu erleben: mit ausladenden Bach-Arrangements, Haydn- und Beethoven-Sinfonien, mit Brahms (Ormandys ungarischer Geigenlehrer war ein Schüler des Brahms-Freundes Joseph Joachim gewesen), über russische Meister wie Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakow und Tschaikowsky oder französische Komponisten wie Saint-Saëns, Debussy und Ravel bis hin zu Richard Strauss, Ottorino Respighi, Jean Sibelius und amerikanischen Zeitgenossen wie Virgil Thomson und Aaron Copland. Zu den Solisten gehören legendäre Namen wie Claudio Arrau, Rudolf Serkin, Robert Casadesus, Nathan Milstein, Joseph Szigeti und Gregor Piatigorsky. Nicht zu vergessen ist die Rarität einer kompletten Fledermaus-Einspielung mit Kräften der MET Opera, wie Ljuba Welitsch und Richard Tucker. Allein 152 Aufnahmen erscheinen gar erstmals auf CD.
