Eugen Jochum

The Orchestral Recordings on Philips (CD)

At the centre of the new Eloquence box, Jochum’s often-underrated way with Wagner and Strauss is well represented by his Philips recordings of overtures and tone-poems (including two versions each of Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegel, from 1952 and stereo remakes from 1960). There are four grand and splendid accounts of late Mozart symphonies, as well as a pair of piano concertos – by Beethoven and Mozart – recorded with the Bamberg SO and his daughter Veronica, who also contributes a new foreword to this unrivalled collection of her father’s work.
