Wagner Faust-Ouvertüre NYPO Carnegie Hall 22 mars 1953

Voici pour débuter cette année cinq ouvertures interprétées avec trois orchestres (New York Philharmonic; NBC Symphony Orchestra; Boston Symphony Orchestra) pour lesquelles les interprétations de Cantelli se situent dans le droit fil de Toscanini. On notera cependant qu’il y a ici plus de respiration et de souplesse, et que l’enthousiasme y est celui de la jeunesse. Mais Toscanini lui-même ne disait-il pas de Cantelli que c’était lui quand il était jeune?

L’ouverture qu’il a le plus jouée était Semiramide, depuis le Festival d’Edimbourg 1950 (le 6 septembre) avec l’orchestre de la Scala: il en reste un bref extrait de 3’45 filmé en répétition à Usher Hall (pour un extrait d’une minute, cliquer ICI ), jusqu’à son tout dernier concert le 17 novembre 1956 à Novara avec ce même orchestre.

For the beginning of this New Year, here are five Overtures performed with three orchestras (New York Philharmonic; NBC Symphony Orchestra; Boston Symphony Orchestra) in which Cantelli’s performances are in line with Toscanini’s. There are, it is worth noting, more breathing and flexibility, and the enthusiasm is that of youth. But didn’t Toscanini himself say that Cantelli was like himself when he was young?

The Overture he performed most was Semiramide, since the 1950 Edinburgh Festival (September, 6) with the Scala Orchestra, of which remains a short  filmed 3’45 rehearsal excerpt shot in Usher Hall (click HERE for one minute thereof), until his very last concert on November, 17, 1956 in Novara, with the same orchestra.

There is a new and promising generation of conductors now emerging! Let’s wait and hear!

By the way, I think the BSO Semiramide has never been made available before.

This is the only filmed Cantelli conducting, but previously it was said the rehearsal was at La Scala, with La Scala orchestra. In the actual youtube clip there is no note about the location.

On Youtube, there is only the last minute of the uninterrupted 3’45 rehearsal excerpt filmed 1950 in Edinburgh (Usher Hall). It was issued as a bonus to Giulini’s DVD Ref. DVA 4901149. The text has been clarified.

Here are two links to purchase the Giulini Classic Archive DVD with the bonus Cantelli rehearsal.

Please note that there are two Giulini DVDs, and the Cantelli Bonus is with the « Mussorgsky, Mozart, Falla » Ref. DVA 4901149.

The Cantelli Bonus is not on the Blu-Ray reissue.

In fact, I do not have the AS Discs. All the Cantelli recordings I have uploaded come from reel-to-reel tapes.
As far as I know, the BSO Semiramis Overture was never published before.
