Notes & Reviews:

The Alsatian-born Munch was in his fifth season as Music Director of the Boston Symphony at the time he gave this concert - his sole appearance with the NBC Symphony. For the occasion he selected three of his French specialties. Munch was a very mercurial conductor, responding to his impulses of the moment. Thus there would often be marked tempo differences from one performance to the next of the same piece, unlike, for example, in the interpretations of Toscanini and Monteux, who were more consistent. His live performances were therefore always original and fresh.
