Notes & Reviews:

In 1949 Charles Munch was appointed director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, a post that brought him to the pinnacle of his international career. He was by then fifty-eight years old, though only in his seventeenth season as a conductor (having previously been a professional violinist), and during his thirteen years with the orchestra he explored a wide range of repertoire from the Baroque to the contemporary - including some sixty-eight world premieres. Munch's activities as a recording artist spanned more than three decades, and in 1955 he launched the Boston Symphony Orchestra into television - a new medium to which his characteristic personality was well suited. Detailing works from the German and Austrian repertoire that occupied an important part of Munch's career (many of which he never recorded commercially), these DVDs feature some of the earliest televised concerts with the orchestra under their Musical Director. The footage is of exceptional musical interest and historical value, and has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques. This set of five BSO DVDs is being made available at a significant discount on the original retail price
