Beethoven: Leonore Ov. 3; Strauss: Till Eulenspiegel; Saint-Saens: Violin Concerto no 3; Stravinsky: Petrushka / Pierre Monteux

Notes & Reviews:

Pierre Monteux is featured on this specially-priced live recording taken from a concert at Berlin's Hochschule für Musik. It is particularly special because Monteux conducted the Berlin Philharmonic on only two occasions - in 1933 and again for this 1960 concert. The program includes Beethoven's third Leonore Overture, Strauss's Till Eulenspiegel, Stravinsky's Petrushka and Saint-Saens' Violin Concerto No.3. The soloist in the concerto is the orchestra's famous leader Michel Schwalbé, and the album's release is a timely tribute to the violinist who died in October, 2012 at the age of 92.
