Description by Naxos:
The conductor Sergiu Celibidache was a legend in his own lifetime, mesmerising orchestras with his intensity and brilliance, both in rehearsal and in performance--which were always conducted from memory. Prokofiev's most important wartime composition, conceived as a symphony of the grandeur of the human spirit, is paired with Strauss's poetic depiction of death and transfiguration. The Celibidache Symphonic Series celebrates the historic release on DVD of rare footage of the few performances ever recorded for television.
