Description

This is a live performance digitally recorded and issued in 1982 with the earliest red label and the first logo to indicate a digital recording. Antal Dorati’s thrillingly demonic live traversal of Liszt’s orchestral masterpiece is often superb. Each of the three protagonists is vividly portrayed; orchestral playing is highly charged, yet scrupulously disciplined. Like Solti, Dorati lets the Hungarian in him take over when it comes to reading Liszt’s complex and often emotion-packed tone poems. Antal Dorati conducts the Royal Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Concertgebouw chorus is led by chorus master Arthur Oldham.
