About

Sony Classical is pleased to release this stunning collection of Artur Rodzinski’s recordings for Columbia Masterworks with the New York Philharmonic in a 16-CD set. 15 works recorded with the New York Philharmonic appear for the first time on CD. These iconic recordings have been transferred and remastered from the original analogue discs and tapes using 24-bit / 192kHz high resolution. Also included in the must-have box-set are facsimile LP sleeves and labels, a booklet with full discographical notes, photos and facsimiles.

Labelled the most exciting young conductor in the USA during the 1930s, Artur Rodziński (1892–1958) galvanized audiences wherever he appeared as a guest, including Philadelphia, where he worked with Stokowski, and New York, where his 1937 concert performance of Strauss’s Elektra is still considered a landmark in the Philharmonic’s history. Earning a reputation as a builder of great orchestras, the fiery, volatile Polish conductor (he reportedly kept a loaded pistol in his pocket to ward off disgruntled players), whose lean, propulsive style emulated that of his idol Toscanini, headed up and developed the Los Angeles Philharmonic (1929–33) and the Cleveland Orchestra (1933–43), with which he gave the American premiere of Shostakovich’s opera Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District in 1935.

Artur Rodziński’s range is further reflected by generous samplings of French music (Saint-Saëns’s Fourth Piano Concerto with Robert Casadesus and various works by Bizet, Ibert, Franck, Satie, Offenbach and Debussy), American repertoire (Gershwin, Copland and Morton Gould) and symphonies by Brahms (nos. 1 and 2) and Sibelius (no.4). This meticulously transferred and remastered collection of Rodziński’s New York Philharmonic recordings represents a generous reward for the conductor’s many patient admirers.
