Music lovers remember the Austrian conductor Hans Rosbaud (1895-1962) for his interpretations of the Mozart operas (mainly at the festival of Aix-en-Provence between 1948 and 1959) and of the music of his contemporaries Hindemith, Schoenberg, Bartok and Stravinsky.
He also gave memorable performances of French composers (Turangalila Symphonie by Messiaen in 1951), but also Mahler was often included in his programs. The present two recordings are the Titan Symphony with the Berlin Philharmonic in November 1954 and Das Lied von der Erde broadcast in Cologne in April 1955.
