Continuing the Classic Concerts via Radio France Musique this week with another one featuring the ORTF Orchestra conducted by the legendary Jean Martinon. Soloist this time is the equally legendary Russian Violinist David Oistrakh in an all Russian program, originally broadcast in 1971.

Here’s what’s on the player this week:

ORTF National Orchestra, dir. Jean Martinon – David Oistrakh, violin 

1. Serge Prokofiev :Classical Symphony in D Maj. Op.25

2. Shostakovich: Concerto No. 2 for Violin and Orchestra op.129 David Oistrakh, violin

3. Piotr Ilyich TCHAIKOVSKY :Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique” in B min op. 74

(Archive INA -Register: 10/10/1971 TEC Paris)

As I said last week, this is a truly remarkable series France Musique has put together, which will continue throughout August. Other memorable conductors in the series include Sergiu Celibidache, Kurt Masur and Leonard Bernstein. I don’t know if there plans for earlier concerts with Andrè Cluytens, but . . . it would be nice.

In any event – a great concert and another one gratefully preserved.

    Jean Martinon was a great conductor; despite his numerous recording for Erato he somehow remained underrated in France. His complete recording of Prokofiev symphonies (VOX) was great. Thanks for this post…….any Cluytens is also much welcome……..

    Jean Martinon was one of the finest conductors I’ve ever heard anywhere, an artist of the highest stature. His career was cut short by his untimely death. Please continue to rebroadcast these wonderful concerts with Maestro Martinon.

    Many thanks for the Martinon Recordings! Is it possible to post the Martinon-Concert DE FALLA La Vida Breve with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in the Royal Albert Hall?
