Early Celibidache on Spotify

Thanks to a post about Busoni’s Bereceuse élégiaque on a Dutch Facebook group, I could find this amazing collection of early Celibidache recordings. From 1945 till 1952 Celibidache was „principal conductor ad interim” of the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra, and shared the helm with Wilhem Fürtwangler till 1954. Then he was kicked out in favor of Herbert von Karajan…
I already heard some of these recordings on the shady, over filtered Quadraphone label, but through the post on the Facebook group I found first rate transfers on the Audite label. As metadata on Spotify lacks, I was very glad an extensive playlist (with date of recording!) could be found here on Musicweb international. Many unknown compositions, soloists, a killer Brahms 4 and a fascinating insight in the early career of Sergiu. Hope you will enjoy it as well!
