Notes & Reviews:

No one should be surprised to find an outstanding collection of French repertoire conducted by Charles Munch. But we most associate this conductor with the Boston Symphony, with whom he made some of the most memorable recordings and concerts of the 1950s and early 1960s. This historic CD, therefore, is a treat for serious collectors (and for those old enough to remember attending these performances)! Munch in collaboration with Toscanini’s NBC Symphony is a fascinating prospect on its own, but what makes this disc interesting is that the Ravel and Roussel were the first performances of this music under this conductor on record.
