Notes & Reviews:

Considered one of the best orchestras in the world, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was founded (as "Palestine Orchestra") in 1936 by great Jewish-Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman, primarily to save Jewish musicians from the growing Nazi menace in Europe. The inaugural concert, on December 26, 1936, was conducted by the famed Arturo Toscanini. Polish born conductor Paul Kletzki (1900-1973) was well known for his great flair for romantic music, resulting in many magnificent performances and recordings, particularly of Mahler, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Berlioz, Schubert, Schumann, Sibelius, Beethoven, Rachmaninov, and Schoenberg; and for his collaboration in concerts and recordings with many of the greatest soloists of the 20th century.
