. . . timeless musicianship . . . Rarely in the history of the gramophone can so eclectic a mix of works have been recorded to such thrilling effect in so short a space of time . . . superbly engineered . . . With the orchestra itself in Olympian form, the sessions included one of the most kaleidoscopically vivid of all recordings of Brahms's tragic Fourth Symphony, a rendering of Strauss's "Tod und Verklärung" that is peerless in its eloquence . . . and a realisation of Respighi's "Feste romane" that, were it better known, would transform the piece's reputation. The last is a particular revelation . . . Similarly memorable is the Berliners' deeply atmospheric account of "L'Ottobrato" ("October Festival") where we experience the kind of exquisitely voiced pianissimo string-playing of which de Sabata was perhaps the first great exponent on record.

4 cd pour souligner (et rappeler aux nouvelles générations de mélomanes avisés), le génie du chef italien Victor de Sabata . . . DG et Decca rééditent leurs fleurons discographiques, bandes miraculeuses d'époque qui malgré la patine du temps, révèlent une baguette incisive, affûtée, animée d'une fièvre rayonnante, plus extravertie que celle de Toscanini, et d'une intensité dramatique exceptionnelle.
