Wer den großen britischen Dirigenten John Barbirolli nur aus seinen späteren, bisweilen knorrigen Aufnahmen - vor allem mit seinem Hallè-Orchester - kennt, wird überrascht sein von diesen, erstmals komplett auf 6 CDs vorgelegten Einspielungen des Enddreißigers mit dem New York Philharmonic, das er fünf Jahre (1936-41) als Nachfolger von Arturo Toscanini leitete. Zeigen sie doch durchweg einen muskulären, dabei überaus flexiblen Stil, der weniger auf minutiöse Genauigkeit, sondern eher auf poetisches Glühen abzielte, aber dabei Klangfarbenzauber und dynamische Expressivität keineswegs vernachlässigte.

Edmund Rubbra established his reputation with his first four Symphonies. But in many ways, Rubbra’s Fifth Symphony may be considered his most immediately attractive. It was premiered on 26 January, 1949 by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sir Adrian Boult at the Royal Albert Hall, but it was Sir John Barbirolli and the Hallé Orchestra’s recording of the work under the auspices of the British Council – the first recording of any Symphony by Rubbra – which had a notable impact and substantially reinforced the composer’s name internationally.

This Japanese SACD reissue features the latest EMI Remaster.

The Barbirolli Societys latest release is a 2-CD set of the complete concert given in the Free Trade Hall, Manchester on 20 October 1960, with the combined forces of the Hallé and BBC Northern Symphony Orchestras. The concert consisted of Nielsens Symphony No.5 and Mahlers Symphony No.7. Michael Kennedy, writing in 2000, stated: Performances of the (Mahler) Seventh were much rarer then than they are today, and Mahlerian scholars and enthusiasts flocked to Manchester for the event, among them Deryck Cooke who was profoundly impressed by Sir Johns ability to make the works structure cohere. This was an especially significant comment coming from Cooke, who harboured many doubts about the symphony and confessed to finding it most problematical.
