Wlhelm Furtwängler, conductor The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Recorded Live on December 8,1952 at Titania-Palast, Berlin. There is no such thing as a "best" recording when it comes to classical music, but there are those which enjoy the highest acclaim. Wilhelm Furtwängler's "Eroica" is probably the most acclaimed of all with critics and music historians, for what that is worth. We can say that his studio and live recordings from 1952 are the most often mentioned on that score, and their popularity has not diminished over the six decades since his passing.
Furtwängler returned in 1952 and conducted the orchestra until his death in 1954. In need of a venue, the Berlin Philharmonic played during the years following the war in the Titania-Palast, an old movie theater converted in a concert hall, and still used the Beethovensaal for smaller concerts. On 18 December 2008, the orchestra announced the official creation of a Digital Concert Hall.
CD 3 Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra 7th Dec. 1952 recorded live by Sender Freies Berlin at the Titania Palast. On this highly imaginative triple CD the legendary Wilhelm Furtwangler, arguably the greatest conductor of all time, conducts three recordings of Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 (the "Eroica"), all of them with the superb Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The first recording is dated 19/20 December 1944, the second 10,11,12 & 17 November 1947, and the third (live) version was captured on 7 December 1952. Vienna Philharmonic December 1944), is remarkable.
