About

One of five box-sets exploring Hans Knappertsbusch’s high-risk strategy in which he relies upon the ‘magic of the moment’ to reveal previously undiscovered musical insights.

His interpretations of composers’ works lead to pleasing new discoveries, even within well-known scores.

Knappertsbusch disliked rehearsals intensely, believing that they were an inhibiting influence. He firmly believed in the inspiration of the moment being central to every performance, taking on Wagner’s idea of spontaneity and tempo modification.

His courageous artistry is clearly demonstrated in each of the five sets in this collection.

Recordings: 1947–1963
