Previously unissued recordings.
 
Superb public performances by Monteux who, in effect, was the principal guest conductor of the Boston Symphony from 1951 to 1964, captured in the best possible sound.

 “Fans of Pierre Monteux will want to seize [this] Boston Symphony collection of …previously unissued performances. There is a feeling of rightness to Monteux’s conducting and the Boston Symphony adds to the pleasure.…No complaints regarding Maggi Payne’s transfers.”
