Munchner Philharmoniker

Conductor

Sergiu Celibidache

About

Sergiu Celibidache’s relationship with the Münchner Philharmoniker lasted from 1979 until the Romanian-born conductor’s death in 1996. Believing in unusually lengthy, detailed rehearsals and in achieving a state of transcendence in the concert hall, Celibidache moulded the Bavarian orchestra into an ensemble to rival the Berliner Philharmoniker, which he had conducted more than 400 times in the years following World War II. This 49-CD set, which reflects (though not exclusively) Celibidache’s particular dedication to Austro-German repertoire, includes seven of Bruckner’s symphonies in interpretations of characteristic expansiveness and spirituality.

Celibidache was without question one of the most important and original conductors in recent memory. He was a perfectionist who disliked what he perceived to be the synthetic sounds created in the modern recording studio, preferring the immediacy of the concert and the interaction with a live audience. This 49-CD box celebrates the  extraordinary legacy of his collaboration with the Müncher Philharmoniker portraying the excitement and atmosphere of their live performances.

It includes all the recordings from the 4 previous EMI/Warner boxes: Bruckner Symphonies 3-9…; symphonies from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann and Brahms; French & Russian music; sacred music and opera. And as a bonus CD Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony recorded in 1948 with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

These recordings are highly valuable and have been in the top sales of EMI Classics and Warner Classics catalogue since their release. The Bruckner cycle is particularly well-known and acclaimed.

Celibidache was Musical Director of the Müncher Philharmoniker between 1979 and his death in 1996. Heavily influenced by Buddhism he is renowned for creating exceptional and life-altering experiences for his audiences through his perfect balancing of sonic and spatial considerations.
