Notes & Reviews:
Charles Munch (1891-1968), legendary conductor and violinist, was best known as the music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1949 to 1962. This program showcases his notable mastery of the French orchestral repertoire. Featured works include masterpieces by Franck, Debussy and Ravel - three composers that were among the conductor's specialties. Immortalized on record, these historic performances have lost none of their intoxicating power.
