  1. Boston Symphony Orchestra / Michael Tilson Thomas
    Legacy

    Boston Symphony Orchestra / Michael Tilson Thomas

    £ 16.50

    Less than one year after Michael Tilson Thomas’s first appointment with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, a series of concerts were filmed for television that demonstrate an electric relationship with the orchestra’s newest assistant conductor. Featuring Three Places in New England by Charles Ives, a composer whom Tilson Thomas has long since championed, as well as two works that are completely new to his discography and videography, this DVD gives a valuable account of his early performances with the BSO. Exclusive bonus interviews with this dynamic Maestro provide a fascinating insight into the performances captured here on film.More details

  2. Hans Rosbaud
    Legacy

    Hans Rosbaud

    £ 9.99

    Gramophone recently remarked that Hans Rosbaud ‘was one of the unsung heroes of mid-20th-century music, who … gave thoroughly rehearsed and assimilated performances and premieres of the widest possible range of music’. After the Second World War, Rosbaud became the single most important interpreter of and advocate for Sibelius’s music in the German-speaking world; he understood Sibelius’s language as few conductors ever have. This work is an important addition to the Rosbaud discography since he never recorded the Symphony No.6 commercially. Throughout his career, Rosbaud manifested a special affinity for French culture and music. After the war, he was the first German-speaking conductor to be invited to perform in France. Here he conducts totally idiomatic and stunning performances of Debussy’s masterpieces, the Nocturnes being a new addition to his discography. More details

  4. 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.
