Notes & Reviews:

To mark Kurt Masur's 85th birthday, this two-CD set features the 1981 live recording of the opening concert from the new Gewandhaus in Leipzig, never before heard in its entirety on disc. This special edition is enhanced by the addition of the "Symphony for Two Worlds," a work that brings Japanese and European instruments together to produce fascinating sound images. Experience Kurt Masur as Gewandhaus Orchestra's conductor, pioneering the classical-romantic repertoire in equal measure with the modern music genre.
