Notes & Reviews:

Live recordings from the Royal Festival Hall in December 1956; Usher Hall, Edinburgh Festival in August 1956; and Royal Festival Hall in 1955. This is the first release to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the death of Sir Thomas Beecham. Sir Thomas never recorded it commercially, and this live performance of the Schubert Ninth is the only recording that exists.
