George Szell - The Warner Recordings (1934-1970) Bonus Documentary Excerpts

Google Rank
The documentary bonus CD in Warner Classics’ George Szell 14-CD anniversary set (available here: https://w.lnk.to/gsrLY) comprises never before released interviews with Szell and many other distinguished figures as well as a previously unreleased rehearsal with Szell and the great pianist Emil Gilels. These three extracts here feature:

00:00 Commentary from the Cleveland Orchestra’s Assistant Principal Second Violin Emilio Llinás, with extracts from Mozart’s Concert Aria Alma grande e nobil core and Schubert’s Symphony No 9

02:46 Commentary from the London Symphony Orchestra’s former Concertmaster John Georgiadis (who sadly has very recently died), with an extract from Mahler’s Des Knaben Wunderhorn lieder: Wer hat dies Liedlein erdacht – Szell had just sacked the deputy harp player from the recording session

06:15 Commentary from George Szell (who even evaluates the literary attributes of some critics!), with an extract from Dvořák’s Slavonic Dance Op. 46 No 3

The documentary includes more conversations with Szell and more evidence of his effect on musicians – with some recollections that may surprise readers and listeners as they are not all scary by any means.
