WILLEM MENGELBERG: AVAILABLE RECORDINGS

Showing an interest in the art of Willem Mengelberg can be expensive, in that most of what is available (with the exception of the Teldec issues) is at full price, and some of the best recordings, both in transfer quality and performance, are combined in multiple disc sets. While the list below does not look too extensive, and careful examination reveals that some of the discs share the same recordings (which is why I have tried to list the complete contents of all collections, for comparison purposes), what's here is all that is currently available of a great career, one of the most important of the first third of the 20th century. I have also listed a number of essential, currently out-of-print Mengelberg recordings for those who become intrigued by his art.

I would like to thank Henry Fogel for calling to my attention the new Dante releases (which he observes have "decent" sound), and for his additional comments on specific recordings. If you have an observation on a specific Mengelberg topic or recording, please e-mail it to me and I will consider it for the Mengelberg Forum.

      PEARL GEMM CDS 9922 [3 discs]
 [This set is a commemoration of the earliest recordings of this
  venerable orchestra, from Stransky through Barbirolli.  None of the
  Mengelberg contributions are sonic treasures, and this set is more for
  those interested in the orchestra.  Some of these items also appear
  in the following:]

WILLEM MENGELBERG, THE COMPLETE 1922-25 NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC RECORDINGS

      BIDDULPH WHL 025-26
 [Although a great deal of vitality comes through, the majority of the
  items listed above are acoustic recordings, with all that implies with
  regard to sound quality and abridgment of the music.  The prize of the
  set, however, is electrical: a complete conjectural Ein Heldenleben,
  composed of rejected takes, which represents a kinder, gentler
  alternative to the issued 78's, presented in the BMG set that is
  listed under the composer, below.]

  came from?  Listen to these recordings and understand!  Although
  relatively early electricals, they sound pretty good in these splendid
  transfers.]

  Serenade for Strings, Op. 48: Waltz
      PEARL GEMM CDS 9070 [3 discs]
 [Although an expensive item, this set is essential for the Mengelberg
  admirer, offering often exquisite playing in a variety of repertoire. 
  While neither Liszt's Les Preludes nor the Brahms 3rd in Vol. 1 should
  be missed, the dramatic--if cut (in the final movement)--Tchaikovsky
  5th and its truncated 1927 predecessor go right to the heart of
  Mengelberg's style of music-making.  The Tchaikovsky 4th is even more
  willful, but fascinating...and the Adagietto from the Mahler 5th is
  unforgettable.]

      in RCA 09026-60929-2
 [Part of a larger set containing pioneering American Strauss recordings
  by Koussevitzky, Beecham, Stokowski and Stock: this is a set which
  belongs in the collection of any admirer of Richard Strauss.]

  generally considered superior.]

 [I have not heard this disc, but reviewers have generally found Dante's 
  original 78rpm transfers to be of lesser quality than those offered
  by Biddulph or Pearl.  The advantage here is that you do not have to
  buy a multiple-disc set to hear these fascinating interpretations. 
  The same comments apply below.]

      TELDEC HISTORIC 4509-93673-2
 [This disc offers Mengelberg's extremely rare 1941 re-recording of the
  Tchaikovsky 6th, which differs from the widely-circulated 1937
  recording in offering a more expansive final movement.]

Concert Recordings

Willem Mengelberg remains a controversial figure nearly 50 years after his death. There are some who are offended that he took liberties with the music he led, others who marvel at the stamina of an orchestra which must have played itself into exhaustion on occasion. As with any conductor, Mengelberg's live recordings do not always represent him at his best, but rather at his most exciting. If extensive rubato and portamento playing seem foreign to our ears, we need to remember that Mengelberg was raised in the era of Richter and Nikisch, when such devices were expected. Whatever our taste decrees today, he still has lessons to teach us about getting to the heart of the music.

What is below is only a fraction of what ought to be available, and for that reason I also provide a separate list of currently unavailable CDs, series formerly issued by Philips and Seven Seas, which feature live concert recordings. It should be noted, however, that some of the discs below include performances found in previous series, although these new releases may also incorporate new material.

The collections are grouped together by record company.

 [The above set contains performances previously released in Japan on
  King Rcords and imported into the U.S. on the Seven Seas label.  There
  are some differences in sonic balance and a portion of the Tchikovsky
  5th missing in earlier issues has been restored.  Reviews suggest that
  the source material was not always in the best sound, but this set is
  otherwise a good introduction to the later career of Mengelberg.]

ARCHIV DOCUMENTS

Perhaps one of the most remarkable personal acts of devotion to the art
of a deceased conductor is to be found in record dealer Michael G.

Since U.S. dealers may have difficulty discovering sources for Archiv
Documents and Dante CDs, I will mention that both are currently imported
by JEM Music Corporation, which supplied information on the contents of
the discs. They were quick to point out that they offer as well several
books on Mengelberg.
DANTE LYS series

MENGELBERG - BRAHMS, VOL 1
-BRAHMS: Symphony No. 1 in c, Op. 69 (COA, rec. 1940); 
  Tragic Overture, Op. 81
      DANTE LYS 075
 [The Tragic Overture appears to be the 78rpm studio recording.]      
 [Henry Fogel comments: A very powerful Brahms First, more tautly
  knit and structured than you might expect.  Yes it features
  "Mengelbergian" shifts of tempo and dynamics, but not as sharp as some
  of his performances, and extremely well integrated into a unit.  This
  is one of the conductor's finest performances, I think.]
