The conductor Sergiu Celibidache was a legend in his own lifetime, mesmerising orchestras with his intensity and brilliance, both in rehearsals and in performances - which were always conducted from memory.

The 'Incomparable Celibidache' box-set celebrates the historic release on DVD of rare footage of performances with the Orchestra Sinfonica di Torino della RAI between 1969-70.

Filmed in black and white in 4:3 aspect ratio.

Celibadache in this recording takes on Berliozís passionate autobiographical monument to obsessive and unrequited love.
