Back to the vault this week for something historic by way of the Los Angeles Philharmonic from the 1960s. Guest conducted by the great Hans Swarowsky and featuring legendary Pianist Claudio Arrau in a concert of music by Brahms, Alban Berg and Zoltan Kodaly. This previously unheard, never-broadcast and long-thought-lost concert was recorded on January 26, 1967.

Since it’s a little under 2 hours, it’s on two players. And here’s what’s what:

L.A. Phil. – Hans Swarowsky, Guest Conductor
Claudio Arrau – Piano
Concert of January 26, 1967

Part 1 – Brahms: Piano Concerto Number 1 (w/Arrau)

Part 2 – Berg: Three Symphonic Excerpts from Lulu
Kodaly: Dances from Galanta

Enjoy and stay tuned for more historic goodies in the coming weeks. There’s lots more. I promise.
