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.
