To more familiar territory this week. Still by way of French Radio in the 1950’s. The repertoire is Debussy this time. The Rhapsodie Orientale for Saxophone and Orchestra featuring the legendary saxophonist Marcel Mule, accompanied by the Symphony Orchestra of The French Radio conducted by another legend, Manuel Rosenthal in this circa 1955 Radio broadcast recording.
Rare broadcast recordings of familiar works as performed by the biggest names of the day.
Perfect end to the week, if you ask me. Or a perfect start – depending on where you are
