Notes & Reviews:

After leaving the Royal College of Music Sir Eugene Goossens became a violinist with the Queen's Hall Orchestra before becoming an assistant to Sir Thomas Beecham. He had a gift for assimilating difficult scores and gave London premieres of Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps and works by Honegger, Milhaud and Poulenc with his own orchestra. Goossens made a number of brilliant recordings for RCA, EMI and lastly for Everest. His Russian recordings for EMI from 1956 to 1957 have not been issued before on CD and show his close affinity with these brilliant orchestral scores.
