Sample text

Matthew Passion. Badal: Thanks to Mr. Mendelssohn. Davis: Exactly, and what the devil they knew about John Wilbye or Purcell or Orlando Gibbons! And all those fantasies where there weren't any bar lines at all and the rhythm was completely free! Did they know anything about that at all? I doubt it. The editions of Mozart that you find in the nineteenth century are really not what we think of as Mozartian at all. And all these men you've mentioned were born in the nineteenth century and carried that tradition with them.

That is the most positive aspect of it. We have now laid down fifty years of the history of musical performance. That's beautiful because you can fish out, if you want, Grumiaux's two old recordings of the Mozart violin concertos. I don't know if you can get them any more, but every kid who plays the fiddle should hear them, because there's something about the way Grumiaux played that fiddle which is unbelievable. Or if you can find the old recordings of Menuhin playing the Elgar! I was brought up on Kreisler's Beethoven Concerto and Mischa Elman's Tchaikovsky.

Banal: Something which I just finished playing last night, and speaking of Bruno Walter again, was Hans Pfitzner's Palestrina, which is almost never performed in this country. Bruno Walter conducted the world premiere in 1917, and the last letter he wrote in his life was to Frau Pfitzner. In that letter he said that he thought Palestrina would survive, that it had all the elements of greatness. And I thought, I would never have been able to hear that work if it weren't for recordings. Masur: Yes, and we are very proud that we did the first recording of Schumann's Genoveva.
