(Bear with us on the Audio Player situation – hopefully it will be straightened out by next week) (UPDATE: It’s fixed)
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.
