The video direction is sensible. Celibidache conducts without a score, and his technique is eminently practical. He indicates tempo, flow, and dynamics clearly…The sound of the orchestra is quite remarkable. This concert simply is unforgettable.
One of the joys of Celibidache’s rendition is the glowing and solid pianissimos in the strings. The brass choirs are gorgeously full and rounded…there is drama and excitement.
