Recordings with Sergiu Celibidache

Throughout his lifetime Sergiu Celibidache was convinced that music could not be conserved on tape. He nevertheless did record a few concerts – especially compositions by Anton Bruckner – with the Munich Philharmonics. To this day, these recordings are regarded as legendary: not surprising, given that Celibidache is considered to be the greatest Bruckner specialist of his time.

»Kindertotenlieder« and »Tod und Verklärung«

The Munich Philharmonic and Sergiu Celibidache share an exceptional legacy. Because of the Celibidache era and its part in forming the core essence of the orchestra, this first MPHIL physical archive release consists of two recordings under the baton of Maestro Celibidache: Gustav Mahler’s »Kindertotenlieder« and Richard Strauss’ »Tod und Verklärung«.
