CLAUDIO ABBADO LOST TAPES


Previously-unreleased, this 1971 live recording from Vienna’s Grosser Saal of Claudio Abbado and the Wiener Philharmoniker was recently discovered in the archives of Austrian Radio – the ‘ORF’. The young music director from La Scala had been invited to conduct one of the orchestra’s subscription concerts by the musicians themselves, who had been so impressed with him during a previous collaboration in 1965. 

His Schubert Symphonies 5 & 8 are now available: DG.lnk.to/AbbadoRediscovered
