Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Eugene Ormandy's unbroken forty-two-year association with the Philadelphia Orchestra was unique in history. Famous for its rich and powerful "Philadelphia Sound", the orchestra was described by Rachmaninov as "the greatest virtuoso orchestra in the world". Ormandy was a close friend of the composer, and it was to celebrate the conductor's eightieth birthday that they performed Rachmaninov's magnificent and powerful Second Symphony, a performance whose authenticity would be difficult to beat.
