Description
"I am Hungarian, and I know these people, this music." So proclaims Ferenc Fricsay (1914–1963) in rehearsing a passage from Smetana's The Moldau. "Play it as a peasant dance … with a vital force that turns into tenderness." Fricsay also conducts music by his favorite composer (Mozart) and conducts Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in the "Champagne Aria" from Don Giovanni. "His gypsy downbeat is so quick, it growls," says fellow conductor Antonio Pappano. "Everything is raised up, intense, quicksilver, transparent. When he senses something is not alive, his radar hones in—it's frightening."

"Caillat assembles concert footage from the period, interview sequences, home movies, rehearsals, and Fricsay's own narrative … to create a flowing collage of Fricsay's meteoric career, which blazed forth from the ruins of post-WWII Germany and Hungary…. The bonus segment gives us a rousing Silken Ladder Overture of Rossini, Italianate and diaphanous; then, Beethoven's Leonore Overture No. 3 in C, the canvas large and dramatic enough to substitute for the actual opera. Fricsay's concentration is fierce."—Audiophile Audition
