PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED CONCERT PERFORMANCES, 1952-55.
 
Superb public performances by Munch captured in the best possible sound; includes works never commercially recorded by him: Beethoven’s and Schumann’s Second Symphonies, Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin.
 
“This set is like a treasure chest. One dips into it and finds a valuable item almost every time. It’s a fine reminder of the exciting, inspirational art of Charles Munch and it’s an equally fine reminder of the excellence of the Boston Symphony Orchestra under his leadership.”
