About

Access to the publicly broadcast Boston Symphony Orchestra concerts from this era has been extremely difficult even for researchers. This series of DVDs make these performances available for the first time since they were broadcast.

Charles Munch launched the BSO into television in 1955. He was an immensely popular conductor and well suited to being filmed.

This material represents some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony and Charles Munch, and has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques. It is of exceptional musical interest and rare historic value.

Neither of the two works featured on this DVD have been recorded commercially by Munch, although he programmed both works during his tenure at the BSO.

His renderings of the two symphonies are exciting and spontaneous, with the kind of precision and flair we have come to expect from the BSO under Munch’s buoyant direction.
