Notes & Reviews:

Monteux was famous for his recordings of French repertoire, but he was trained in the Germanic shool of Beethoven and Brahms. This CD displays his ability with that repertoire. Monteux never recorded Cherubini's 'Anacreon Overture' or Richard Strauss' Don Juan commercially, so these performances are BBC exclusives.
