Notes & Reviews:

This rare material represents some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony and Erich Leinsdorf, and has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques. It is of exceptional musical interest and historic value. The BSO's Music Director for seven seasons, Leinsdorf had a long and distinguished career. Because he didn't perform Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony regularly (on only 14 occasions with the BSO) the performance is fresh and insightful - the emotional commitment is great both from Leinsdorf and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which Richard Dyer describes as 'solid, flexible and brilliant'. All three featured works are new to Leinsdorf's discography

"Leinsdorf was an excellent conductor who was somewhat underrated in the United States because his controlled, precise style was less interesting for audiences to watch than the more flamboyant podium performances of his contemporaries, such as Leonard Bernstein. But Leinsdorf had a superb sense of musicianship, great understanding of the individual elements of an orchestra and the best way to fit them together, and complete dedication to analyzing music and bringing out composers’ intentions." -Infodad.com
