  1. Looking forward to this immensely! The Electrola recordings Böhm made in Dresden were so state-of-the-art and many are wonderfully memorable. The highly collectible and recommendable EMI set of reissues includes a volume dedicated to concerti, but I do not think this Beethoven 3rd made it on there.

    Hannsler has recently reissued much of the recordings from that period, including the wondrous and breathtaking Meistersinger Act 3, which has some interesting notes about the recording process they used. Highly recommend all of it, and always looking for more!

  2. I'm never too sure of myself when disagreeing with Squirrel, but I found Böhm's accompaniment rather dull & lumpy in places, particularly in the 1st movement. At least, he seems so compared with his soloist! I'd never heard her before but it's no surprise to see she studied with Sauer & d'Albert, she has a lovely fluent style which is a great pleasure to listen to. Thank you for letting me make her acquaintance!

  3. Can you restore the upload please. Thanks...
