  1. Dear Rolf,
    I probably have not paid enough attention to Knappertsbusch. The main thing I can remember about his recordings is how incredibly slowly he takes Beethoven's 6th Symphony's 2nd movement. The only saving grace is the bird call (cuckoo) section, which is amazing. The Weber and Liszt are both fine. Every version of Les Préludes pale in comparison to Mengelberg's. If you're not familiar with his version, make sure to listen to it. Thank you for this upload and all the work you put in to sharing music.
