Sandor Vegh & Camerata Salzburg - Vegh Conducts Schubert (CD)

$ 19.99


Release Date: 05/13/16

Previously unpublished recordings of Végh made at the Cologne Philharmonic between 26 May and 2 June 1996.

The music of Schubert played a special role in Végh's life: he approached it with deep respect and worked painstakingly with it. He often played Schubert's chamber music, including the string quartets, and also, sometimes as chamber partner to Pablo Casals, the B-flat major and the E-flat major Piano Trios, and the C major String Quintet. At the helm of the Camerata he conducted all eight symphonies of Schubert. Recordings of the last four performed by the Camerata Academica under Sándor Végh were already available on CD, however, the first four symphonies, composed between 1813 and 1816, have until now not been available in Sándor Végh's interpretation. This present compilation contains previously unpublished recordings that were made in the concert hall of the Cologne Philharmonic during the Camerata Academica's Schubert cycle, between 26 May and 2 June 1996.
In the last two decades of his life Sándor Végh placed increasing emphasis on conducting. At the beginning of this period he was still performing as a violinist, until because of age-related joint problems he had to lay down the bow. Végh conducted the Camerata Academica chamber orchestra from 1978 right until his death in 1997, though from time to time he also conducted other orchestras, including the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics, and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. A marked feature of the Camerata sound was that the strings were usually Végh's students. This resulted in the creation of an even string sound and unity of style which was unique in its type. 'For me the Camerata is an instrument, and the members feel every frisson of my soul. They give me a great deal of pleasure.' - said Végh in an interview.
