Description: All RI collectors will have one of the five or so recordings of the 1883 symphony but the only other disc I can find with the 12-minute overture is one on Koch Schwann in 1997 on Vol. 1 of their substantial “The Unknown Richard Strauss“ series. The key and the opening stance of the overture clearly point to Beethoven’s Coriolan overture, but the subliminal irritations, frictions, surprises, and saliencies already present here become even much more apparent in the symphony. Deutsche Radio Philharmonie; Hermann Baümer.
