Furtwängler: Lost Manfred Overture now released for the very first time. Volume 12 of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL editionpresents a sensational archive discovery: a live recording of the Manfred Overture from the 1953 festival, until recently presumed lost, and now released for the very first time. In 1953, Furtwängler also conducted two of his all-time favourites, Beethoven's Eroica and Schumann's Fourth Symphonies. Until now, these exciting interpretations were only available in technically flawed recordings made by enthusiasts. For this edition, the newly rediscovered original tapes from the archives of the SRF Swiss Radio and Television were made available.

"SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD."

Ossy Renardy's real name was Oskar Reiss, but when touring Italy as a young teenager, he changed his name - on the instigation of his first manager - into Ossy Renardy. This artist's name should give him more fame than the serious and stiff Viennese 'Oskar Reiss'

In 1954, Furtwängler wanted to make of this Don Juan his musical testimony (he died less than 1 year efter this recording), in a "metaphysical ", reserved but alive version, of a unique dramatic strength.
Thanks to the technique still in its beginning of the Movie-opera, we discover in Siepi a Don Juan full of liveliness and in the physical appearance of Hollywood actor, Della Casa so beautiful wasting away in Elvire, or divinely moving Grümmer.
And at the end there is Furtwängler's equally unfashionable reading, romantic and big-honed, taking its time to unfold the drama. Furtwängler definitely tilts the Mozart's "Dramma Giocoso" towards "dramma" aspect, making this performance the most riveting ever seen.
Even if the recording suffers from the technical limits of time (a little faded colors Technicolor), the correct conditions allow us to discover what the spectators of 1954 had seen: a old-fashioned and traditional but alive performance, which gives substance to one of the most mythical and of the most tremendous recordings of Don Giovanni.

Maybe the best Don Giovanni on DVD.
