  7. Sir John Barbirolli (2 CDs)
    Legacy

    Sir John Barbirolli (2 CDs)

    £ 14.99

    Sir John Barbirolli (1899–1970), born in London of Italian and French parentage, is remembered above all as conductor of the Hallé Orchestra in Manchester, which he helped save from dissolution in 1943 and conducted for the rest of his life. However he was also a guest conductor of many other orchestras, including the BBC Symphony Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, the Berlin and the Vienna Philharmonic, and here performs with the WDR. These live recordings have never been released on CD before. Barbirolli never recorded Britten’s Serenade for tenor, horn and strings, so this represents a new addition to his large discography. The only other recording Barbirolli made of Schubert’s Symphony No.4 was with the New York Philharmonic in 1939, so this 1969 live performance with the KRSO in excellent stereo is essential for any collector in this great conductor’s work.
