Notes & Reviews:

As the record industry found its feet in the middle of the 20th century, so the London Philharmonic Orchestra came of age - establishing itself as an undeniable powerhouse on the worldwide orchestral scene and attracting the great conductors and soloists of the time. One celebrated conductor-orchestra relationship followed another; the three heard on this disc brought forth new artistic standards, new compositional fruits and a new global following for the ensemble.
