BACH-Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor/Pt 1 of 2/Leibowitz


Rare and Outstanding! Rene Leibowitz conducts The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. (Early 1960s) Here's Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzCF18qp560&feature=related Arranged for double orchestra by Rene Leibowitz. Rene Leibowitz (1913-1972) was born in Warsaw but moved to Paris in his teens and there began a long, illustrious conducting career. Particularly interested in contemporary music, he studied with Webern and Schoenberg and wrote a detailed analysis of twelve-tone music. A keen ear for instrumental coloration (Ravel was his orchestration teacher) was evident in his kaleidoscopic transcriptions of such works as Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C (for double orchestra!). But he is best known for his often highly personal renditions of many staples of the Classical and Romantic repertoire.
