Symphony No. 6 in F Major, Opus 68 – “Pastorale”

Dresden Philharmonic (Herbert Kegel, conductor)

ONE-SENTENCE REVIEW:

So – this is another one of those ridiculous 1990s CD-ROM discs where you could, supposedly, follow along with the score while it played in your computer – but mostly it just jammed and the performances of these discs were always pretty terrible.

ORIGINAL LINER NOTES:

No liner notes but lots of instructions on how to get it to work in your computer. All very complicated and it never really worked. I tried a few of these discs and they were always pretty frustrating but I still bought them because the concept of being able to follow along with the score while a piece of music played was very new and very exciting.

I just wished it would have worked.

TRACK LISTING:

  • 1: CD+ROM Data Track
  • 2: Mvt. I: Allegro ma non troppo
  • 3: Mvt II: Andante molto mosso
  • 4: Mvt III: Allegro; Mvt. IV Allegro; Mvt V: Allegretto

But I give you a really good performance below:

FINAL THOUGHT:

It was a novelty and would have been really cool had it worked and had the performances chosen actually been decent. But, alas, these were pretty terrible discs from the Laserlight division of Delta Music Inc. (whatever that is).

    It was such a good idea but the technology never really lived up to that idea.

  3. Herbert Kegel’s is one of the best Beethoven cycles around. His performances are first rate. Capriccio is also a great label. I don’t understand what went wrong. Maybe your computer? If you like Beethoven, give Kegel a try. It’s more than well worthy.
