Conductor

John Barbirolli

About

Spanning over 40 years, these recordings trace the career of Sir John Barbirolli, a conductor of proverbial warmth and generosity, a transformative force in British music and a legendary figure who collaborated with the greatest artists of his time. Shortly before his death in 1970 he completed a Sibelius cycle with the Hallé Orchestra, whose fortunes he had steered for nearly three decades, and among other composers closely linked with his name are Elgar, Delius, Brahms, Mozart, Mahler and Puccini. The wide-ranging contents of this landmark 109-disc set, which comprises all the recordings Barbirolli made for HMV and PYE, include previously unpublished items and documentary material. Everything has been remastered in high definition, LP-era recordings from the original tapes, and 78-era recordings from the best available sources.

29 July 2020 marks the 50th anniversary Sir John Barbirolli’s passing. He died at the age of 70, having been born in 1899 in London to parents of Italian and French origin. 

A great British conductor notable for the warmth and generosity of his interpretations, and for his attention to detail, Barbirolli is especially closely associated with Manchester’s Hallé Orchestra, of which he became Permanent Conductor in 1943. He transformed the Hallé’s fortunes and remained closely associated with the orchestra for 27 years.

Barbirolli began his career as a cellist, going on to establish himself as a conductor in the UK in his twenties. He received his first contract with the New York Philharmonic as early as 1927 and went on to become Arturo Toscanini’s successor at the orchestra, remaining with it for seven seasons (1936-1943).

This 109-disc Warner Classics set comprises all the recordings Barbirolli made for the HMV and PYE labels. Spanning the years between 1928 and 1970, they were made with a variety of orchestras, including the Hallé, London Symphony, London Philharmonic, Philharmonia/New Philharmonia, Berliner Philharmoniker and Wiener Philharmoniker.

All the recordings originally released on LP have been remastered in high definition from the original tapes. Material from the 78 rpm era has been remastered – also in high definition – from the best sources available.

The set reflects the great breadth of Barbirolli’s repertoire and interests. Especially prominent in the collection are the composers most closely associated with his name: Elgar, Delius and other British composers of Barbirolli’s time; Brahms, Mozart, Mahler and Sibelius. The collection also features such figures as Beethoven, Haydn, Tchaikovsky, Dvořák and Grieg, and, perhaps less expectedly, music from the Baroque era, Latin America and traditional British songs. 

Soloists in orchestral music and songs/choral works include: Fritz Kreisler, Jascha Heifetz, Yehudi Menuhin, Mischa Elman, Guilhermina Suggia, Gregor Piatigorsky, Jacqueline du Pré (notably in the famous 1965 recording of the Elgar Cello Concerto), Evelyn Rothwell (the oboist who was Barbirolli’s wife), Artur Rubinstein, Alfred Cortot, Edwin Fischer, Artur Schnabel, Wilhelm Backhaus, Daniel Barenboim, Dame Janet Baker, Montserrat Caballé and Jon Vickers.

Operatic recordings include: excerpts from Turandot, recorded live at Covent Garden in 1937, with Eva Turner and Giovanni Martinelli, and complete recordings of Madama Butterfly (Rome, 1966) with Renata Scotto and Carlo Bergonzi, Otello (London, 1968) with James McCracken, Gwyneth Jones and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, and Dido and Aeneas (London, 1965) with Victoria de los Angeles and Peter Glossop. Also featured are arias recorded by some of the greatest singers of the 1920s and 30s, including Frida Leider, Beniamino Gigli and Fyodor Chaliapin.

The set, assembled with the help of the Barbirolli Society, also includes previously unpublished items and a CD of rehearsal material and interviews.

As a bonus the box also includes an audio documentary presented by Jon Tolansky, John Barbirolli – A Memoir, which features conversations with Barbirolli and recollections by distinguished figures.
