Access to the publicly broadcast Boston Symphony Orchestra concerts from this era has been extremely difficult, even for researchers. This series of DVDs will 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.

Munch gave extensive performances of both of these Brahms symphonies during his time at the Boston Symphony, particularly during the orchestraís many national and international tours.

Munchís reading of both symphonies display his characteristic energy and enthusiasm which, coupled with the BSOís distinctive sound, makes for a captivating DVD.

This is the first DVD release.
