Notes & Reviews:

This rare material, filmed in color, represents some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and William Steinberg, and has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques. The BSO's Music Director for just three seasons, Steinberg spent a great deal of time in the USA, having left Europe following Music Director positions in Cologne, Prague and Frankfurt Steinberg's precise and minimalist technique belies the intensity with which the orchestra responds to his baton - the performances are lively and full of character. The Haydn is new to Steinberg's discography.

BBC Music Magazine
Precise yet expressive, Steinberg's Beethoven Symphonies Nos 7 & 8 are models of clarity and rhythmic dynamism. The Haydn is excellent.
