This series of DVDs will make the publicly broadcast BSO concerts from this era available for the first time since they were broadcast.
This rare material represents some of the earliest concert footage that exists of Klaus Tennstedt from this key chapter in his career and has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques. It is of exceptional musical interest and historic value.
This concert took place just 3 years after Tennstedt made his dramatic US debut with the BSO performing Bruckner 8 - a newspaper headline the following day described the experience as 'once in a lifetime'.
Tennstedt formed a very special relationship with the BSO, conducting it regularly for 10 years. They covered a great deal of the core Austro-German repertoire that suited Tennstedt so well.
This DVD is only the second instance of a performance featuring Tennstedt with the BSO having been made available to the public and represents some of the earliest concert footage with this great conductor.
The Gramophone Classical Music Guide describes Tennstedt's live recording of Bruckner 4 with the LPO as a performance sufficient unto itself, and his recording of Bruckner 8 with the LPO as comparable with Barbirolli, Furtwängler, Karajan and Klemperer.
ICA Classics' recent DVD release of Tennstedt with the LPO performing Mahler 5 was described in BBC Music Magazine as epitomising 'the combination of immensely detailed precision and overwhelming expressive intensity that Tennstedt's many admirers found so special'.
Two of ICA's BSO DVDs featuring Charles Munch as conductor have been awarded the Diapason d'Or in France's Diapason magazine.
