Notes & Reviews:

The LPO made its first recordings on 10 October 1932, just three days after its first public performance following its founding by Sir Thomas Beecham. This set of four discs presents a vivd chronicle in music of the Orchestra's first twenty-five years, its first four principal conductors, and its invaluable contribution for the early days of the record industry.
