Notes & Reviews:

The Toscanini Memorial Concert preserved in this album was an altogether remarkable event: three great conductors, Bruno Walter, Charles Munch and Pierre Monteux came forth to pay homage to their friend and colleague, each leading a work that Toscanini had interpreted so wonderfully well. Only the Eroica was previously released from this memorable concert in any format, and the bonus selections were only issued on a Roulette mono LP (which also included Dvorak's New World Symphony) as a fund-raising record for the Symphony of the Air; this is the first release of these performances in stereo.
