Notes & Reviews:

Munch launched the BSO into television in 1955. He was an immensely popular conductor and well suited to being filmed. This material represents some of the earliest televised concerts. Munch demonstrates a clear enjoyment of the works and combines discipline with freedom, guiding the orchestra to a thrilling performance. Genoveva is dramatic, whilst he gives a 'sunny' rendition of Schubert's 5th Symphony. David Hurwitz wrote on classicstoday.com regarding a Schubert recording with Charles Munch and the BSO: "It is unbelievably exciting, with the orchestra playing as if its collective life depended on it". Two of ICA's BSO DVD's featuring Charles Munch as conductor, have been awarded the Diapason d'Or in France's Diapason magazine.
