about

This album is the first part of a two part album devoted to the work of the conductor Jascha Horenstein.This two part format has been selected because the principal work - the Busoni PIano Concerto - is too long to be accommodated in a single issue. Both parts have been priced at the equivalent of 50% of a normal download, allowing them to be purchased at the same price as a single album at £8. Part one is CRQ 420 and part two is CRQ 421.

The recording of the Busoni Piano Concerto is taken from the last of the three Busoni centenary concerts that Horenstein, who knew Busoni well in Berlin in the 1920s, conducted for the BBC in 1966. The soloist is John Ogdon and the orchestra is the London Symphony Orchestra.

This titanic performance is bookended by the contents of the single LP that Horenstein recorded for the French branch of EMI, Pathe, in 1954 with France's premiere radio orchestra, now known as the Orchestre National and then as the Orchestre Radio Symphonique. The two works that Horenstein then recorded were Richard Strauss's Metamorphosen and Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms. First issued on LP, these recordings have subsequently received very limited circulation.
