When you complete a purchase of a physical album (including CDs, vinyl and other formats), a free MP3 version of that album is added to your basket.

  • The historical publications at audite are based, without exception, on the original tapes from broadcasting archives. In general these are the original analogue tapes, which attain an astonishingly high quality, even measured by today's standards, with their tape speed of up to 76 cm/sec. The remastering -- professionally competent and sensitively applied -- also uncovers previously hidden details of the interpretations. Thus, a sound of superior quality results. CD publications based on private recordings from broadcasts cannot be compared with these.

Den historischen Veröffentlichungen bei audite liegen ausnahmslos die Originalbänder aus den Rundfunkarchiven zugrun­de. In der Regel sind dies die ursprünglichen Analogbänder, die mit ihrer Bandgeschwindigkeit von bis zu 76 cm/Sek. auch nach heutigen Maßstäben erstaunlich hohe Qualität erreichen. Das Remastering -- fachlich kompetent und sensibel angewandt -- legt zudem bislang verborgene Details der Interpretationen frei. So ergibt sich ein Klangbild von überlegener Qualität. CD-Veröffentlichungen, denen private Mitschnitte von Rundfunksendungen zugrunde liegen, sind damit nicht zu vergleichen.

Extraordinary artists in extraordinary recordings on an extraordinary format: these are the criteria for audite's LP releases. Hot off the press is Furtwängler's last performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, now also available on premium 180g vinyl (DMM).

Wilhelm Furtwängler conducted Beethoven's Ninth Symphony more than a hundred times. In August 1954, three months before his death, he directed his last performance in Lucerne which proved to be an "elemental musical event" (Neue Zürcher Zeitung). Alongside the brilliant Phil­harmonia Orchestra and a stellar cast of soloists (Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Elsa Cavelti, Ernst Haefliger and Otto Edelmann), Furtwängler accentuates the visionary character of this monumental score: he charges the outer movements with an almost unbearable sense of suspense and interprets the lyrical passages, especially the slow third movement, cantabile and in flexible tempi. Comparing this "Lucerne Ninth" to Furtwängler's other benchmark interpretations of the Ninth - such as his famous performances in Berlin (1942) and Bayreuth (1951) - allows for a closer examination of the constants and changes in his very subjective view of Beethoven's final symphony. For the release of this concert recording as part of the series "LUCERNE FESTIVAL Historic Performances", the original tapes from the archives of SRF Swiss Radio and Television have been newly re-mastered. The pitch has been adjusted anew so that the recording, for the first time, sounds as close to the original as possible - closer than ever before. This correction in pitch not only changes the lengths of the movements, but also the dramaturgy - the 3rd movement, for example, is almost 17 seconds longer than on comparable recordings, which considerably changes the musical expression.

Wilhelm Furtwängler (1886-1954), who spent the final years of his life in Clarens on Lake Geneva, was one of the defining artists of the Internationale Musikfestwochen Luzern, today's LUCERNE FESTIVAL. Whereas Arturo Toscanini played an important role during the festival's founding years of 1938/39, Furtwängler was instrumental in establishing it as one of the then small number of great festivals. In 1944, he came to Lucerne for the first time to conduct two concerts; from 1947 - after his conducting ban had been lifted - until his death he came to Lucerne each summer (with the exception of 1952) where he enjoyed a special status.
