Notes & Reviews:

It was not until 1897, when Artur Nikisch conducted Ernest Chausson's Symphonie, that it was hailed as a masterpiece on a par with Beethoven's or Schumann's symphonies. His Poème de l'Amour et de la Mer, today likened to Mahler's orchestral Lieder, has been undertaken by opulent mezzo voices such as Jessye Norman, Linda Finnie and Kathleen Ferrier, heard here in a miraculous live performance. Completing the program, Charles Munch and the Boston Symphony usher in the 20th century with a wonderful performance of Debussy's Printemps.
