Both Hugo Kolberg (1898-1979) and Michel Schwalbé (1919-2012) were concertmasters of the Berlin Philharmonic. Kolberg is the less well-known. He replaced Szymon Goldberg in Furtwängler’s Berlin Philharmonic in December 1934 when Goldberg was forced to leave Germany. Schwalbé led the Berliner Philharmoniker from the first desk from 1957 to 1985 and helped to shape an era under Karajan. Both never recorded the works presented on this discs commercially.
