Despite the rather hoky nature of the presentation of the Bell telephone Hour, as you would expect from 45 years ago, this is a magnificent document of how a great conductor works. The sound is adequate but what shines through is the fact that Szell works as one with the orchestra in rehearsal, honing, crafting and balancing the performance. They respond superbly of course but Szell doesn't give a performance while in rehearsal, a mistake so many conductors make today. He saves it for the night and what a performance it is. The tension, drama and sheer theatrical power of a well drilled rehearsal comes through, as it should. The other aspect of this DVD is the warmth that he shows towards the music and his musicians. All the stories of Szell's coldness are flung out the window. He was a simply great conductor, dedicated and self-deprecating.
There are many other highlights on the disc but the Beethoven is the star attraction, all aspiring conductors should see it.
It shows the outstanding ability of an amazing conductor to build an orchestra into one of the world's finest with superb musicianship. Terrific insight.
Szell was one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century, and this DVD gets out of his way and lets him--and his music--speak for themselves.
