Haitink and Solti conduct McCabe
20th March 2009
A mutual and productive respect between the London Philharmonic Orchestra and John McCabe has grown from their first collaborations in 1972. The CD was until recently available only as part of a box set issued to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Orchestra. It has now been issued separately.
‘intense lyricism, rhythmic guile and brilliant orchestration’ Classical Source on McCabe’s Concerto for Orchestra.
‘The brilliance of both composers’ instrumental scoring is matched by the sheer brilliance of the LPO’s playing, and collectors of Haitink and Solti should certainly hear them.’
