Notes & Reviews:

What a courageous concert programme! When Eugene Ormandy conducted "his" Philadelphia Orchestra in the concert recorded live in 1977 and now released on DVD, he picked music that showed off the orchestra's hallmark at its best: the famous "Ormandy sound" - mellow, full toned, opulent, colourful and mellifluously beautiful. One of the 20th century's legendary combinations of conductor and orchestra, Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra, worked closely together for almost half a century. During his tenure as Musical Director from 1936 until 1980, the Philadelphia Orchestra became known for its special sound, wonderfully fitting for the late romantic compositions of the Russian repertoire that Ormandy first introduced to American audiences.
