Herbert Kegel is revered in Japan since his lifetime as one of the most important conductors of the 20thcentury. By contrast, maestro Kegel has always been regarded with a certain scepticism in his home country. For this reason, Kegel’s name today also stands as a warning as to what damage the so-called ‘music business’ and state-regulated cultural policies may do. His interpretations are characterized by immensely painstaking precision, transparency and listenability. The list of exploits can be continued, including, undoubtedly, the first Beethoven cycle in digital technology. It can also be heard in this box. Kegel’s slow tempi are initially surprising, but they have an effect: the poetry and clarity of Beethoven’s scores have rarely shown to more advantage.

Neville Marriner was the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields – the orchestra he founded in 1958 and led for over half a century. Moreover, he was the face of classical music to millions of listeners… in a way that only Toscanini, Bernstein, and Karajan have rivalled in the age of recorded sound. In the later years, it was Capriccio, that stepped in when other labels showed no interest to record the Academy in the bigger romantic repertoire. The central element of this collection is the set of Tchaikovsky symphonies."The members of the Academy, trained on quite different repertory, let their hair down in playing that is both crisp and alert, obviously enjoying their outing into this pop repertory." Edward Greenfield, Gramophone

In Stuttgart, 1983 – 1989,Neville Marriner followed Sergiu Celibidache, offering quite the contrast to that willfully prodigious Romanian broodingly charismatic style with his own easygoing, less spectacular but genial manner and music-making. His sound wasn’t as dense and carefully crafted, but the ensemble’s playing became lighter and flexible, agile rather than probing. It is in his Stuttgart period that Marriner increasingly focused on repertoire that went beyond the baroque and classical periods. This compilation offers repertoire which music lovers will be less likely to associate with Marriner: German romanticism, including all of Schumann’s Symphonies, Richard Strauss, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, Mahler, Bartók and Gershwin – The fundamental impression that comes from re-listening to these performances, apart from good and fresh music-making, is one of sympatheticmusic-making. That feels about right as an epitaph for the man and his body of work.

After the 5CD-Release with sacred choral music by Georg Philipp Telemann (C7215), Capriccio continues now with most impressive Cantatas and Oratorios by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. It's already shown that the famoust of the Bach-Sons has nothing to hide compare to his Fathers Masterworks. Since three decades, Hermann Max has been a major con­trib­u­tor to the canon of his­tor­i­cal­ly informed performance practice and makes these Rarities alive again.

"Lulli is given praise, Corelli great acclaim; Telemann alone is above all fame", wrote the music author Johann Mattheson in 1740. Mattheson's claim was quite accurate: the director of music in Hamburg had less need to fight for recognition than ever. His leading role in the musical life of northern and central Germany was undisputed. With this 5CD-Collection Capriccio presents some most important Sacred Music Masterpieces from his early age to the later period.  Telemann attempted to give each poem the music that "it could endure": each new "musical poetry" consequently stimulated an attempt at an artistically suitable musical realisation.
