As described elsewhere in this website - first Victor Acoustic recordings of Leopold Stokowski - Philadelphia Orchestrainthe Boston Symphony Orchestra was the first major orchestra to record for the Victor Talking Machine Company. Victor then was the leading phonograph and phonograph recording company in the U.
Described elsewhere on this website: UntilVictor had not successfully recorded a full symphony orchestra, nor did they have the recording location to do so. Then, with the construction of the Eighth Floor Auditorium of the Victor headquarters, the "Victor New Office Building no 2" inVictor finally had a suitable recording location for a full symphony orchestra.
Read about this by clicking on - First Victor Acoustic Recordings. This led on October 2, 3, 4 and 5, to Victor's first full orchestral recordings.
These recordings were followed on October 22, by the first recordings of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski. From the surviving recordings and contemporary comment, it is clear that Karl Muck was one of the great conductors of the Boston Symphony. His career in Boston unfortunately came to a sad end, as described below.
Before the arrest, there had been something of an ongoing furor in the press during the previous six months as to whether or not Muck and the Boston Symphony Orchestra would play the Star-Spangled Banner prior to certain concerts which they did not.
This seemingly trivial incident needs to be considered in the context of war fever, and the anti-German sentiments in the US at that time in World War 1.
Muck's detailed love letters to an aspiring Boston soprano may have further complicated his treatment. In any case, Karl Muck was arrested on March 26,and Ernst Schmidt was selected to become the temporary conductor for the remainder of the season.
Ernst Schmidt was a first violin of the Boston Symphony for four seasons and he was conductor of the Boston Pops in the summer Pops season. He was also an active composer whose chamber works were somewhat popular in the early twentieth century. Ernst Schmidt left the Boston Symphony at the end of the season to return to Europe.
Max's brother Hermann Fiedler and sister Elise Fiedler were scholars who moved to England to university teaching. Max Fiedler studied piano and conducting at Leipzig and then beginning in at the Hamburg Conservatory. Max Fiedler made his first appearance with the Berlin Philharmonic in He conducted the Hamburg Philharmonic He made his U.
This led to his invitation to conduct the Boston Symphony, it was widely said at the recommendation of Karl Muck. Unlike his predecessors, Fiedler's conducting experience was orchestral, not with the opera. In Boston, Fiedler programmed contemporary music, such as Richard StraussAlexander GlazunovClaude DebussyJean Sibelius and Frederick Deliusas well as the austro-germanic core repertoire.
However, not all critics were favorable to Fiedler in Boston. Fiedler was selected because of his warm personal friendship with Dr. Muck and as a result of the latter's suggestion. Friendship, however, is no mark of merit Observers said that Fiedler introduced marked accelerations and extremes of tempo in a way, some critics felt, not as called for by the score.
This may have resemblances to what some feel to be the mannered interpretations of Willem Mengelberg. Fiedler, according to more than one source also had the reputation as being something of a "martinet" with orchestras.
Max Fiedler also continued to teach, including in Cologne, and among his students was Einar Hansenfuture first violin with the BSO Max Fiedler continued to conduct a number of German Orchestras and make recordings well into the period of the Third Reich.
Max Fiedler died in Stockholm, Sweden December 1, Rabaud came from a family of musicians.
Henri Rabaud's mother, a singer, created the role of Marguerite in Gounod's Faust. Rabaud said that the music of Wagner left him indifferent, but Rabaud's own compositions are said to be Wagnerian. With the removal of Karl Muck in March,Boston scrambled to find a new conductor.
Only in September, could Henri Rabaud be announced. Nor could Rabaud arrive in time for the opening concerts in Octoberwhich were led by Pierre Monteux at that time conducting at the Metropolitan Operawith piano soloist Josef Hofmann 55, as shown in the announcement photograph, below.
Henri Rabaud was principal conductor of the Boston Symphony for one season,and was not reengaged for the following season.Boston Symphony Orchestra Music Directors Isidor Georg Henschel.
