Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Originally recorded for Philips Classics in 1974, this performance captures the Academy at their early peak. Their crisp, polished performance style influenced younger generations of musicians and music-lovers. Note, for example, that two young, up-and-coming conductors play the keyboard parts here: Andrew Davis and Christopher Hogwood.
