Maazel conducts Richard Strauss

As fine and exciting a collection of Richard Strauss orchestral works as I've heard in a long time. Maazel has the Philharmonic playing like the world-class orchestra it can and should be. BRAVO! A highly recommended release. Thank you, iTunes; keep these live concert recordings coming.

Nwe York Philharmonic Live Strauss Tone Poems

Lorin Maazel and the New York Philharmonic offer another sensational release of a live subscription concert, complete with excellent program notes. This time the Maazel laser falls on the works of Richard Strauss. Everything here is vivid, explosive, astonishing for both solo and ensemble performance and beautifully recorded. Few composers respond better to Maazel's sometimes icy brilliance than Strauss, who was himself the incarnation of mercurial musical genius and heaven-storming personal ego. Here Don Juan is a truly seductive rogue. In Death and Transfiguration we care that Strauss hero (Strauss himself?) should die and yet live and Salome shamelessly (and very seductively) sheds her Seven Veils. The Rosenkalier Suite is the sinuous evocation both of the dance and of a lost world. This is a grand night of music wonderfully recorded an played. Highly recommended!

Flat

This recording suffers from a double assault; Maazel's unispired interpretations and a surprisingly flat recording. I was particularly disappointed in Don Juan, which should jump with vitality during the musical heroics and evoke an unrelenting saddness at life's end. This version does neither. While technically masterful, it lacks soul and depth. This DG series has presented a few wonderfully vibrant recordings. This isn't one of them. It's as if the microphones were set halfway back in the audience. The audio dynamics of previous efforts are missing, which may be a result of over-compression - an ever increasing technical issue with digital recordings.
