Over to Paris this weekend for a Radio studio recording of the Lalo Cello Concerto, with the legendary Andrè Navarra, cello and the Paris Conservatory, conducted by the great Andrè Cluytens.

No date on the disc, but judging from the other sessions around this time, it would be about 1949 by my calculations; maybe a little earlier, maybe a little later. I’m sorry I can’t be more specific – there’s no information to be had at the moment.

Nevertheless, any broadcast performance with either Andrè Navarra or Andrè Cluytens is cause for celebration anyway. And since I am doubtful this performance has been reissued, or even issued in any form other than this French Radio Transcription disc, it constitutes a rare find to go along with being an enjoyable find.

And that’s how Sunday nights should go.

So enjoy this one, and come back next week.

      I know – it’s very frustrating. I keep asking Word Press what’s going on – they’ve updated some features and they appear to be in conflict with others.
