Another historic rehearsal from the weekly series The Boston Symphony in Rehearsal from NBC Radio. Originally broadcast June 9, 1951, this broadcast features the contemporary Russian-American composer Alexander Tcherepnin at the keyboard in a rehearsal (five minutes worth) of his 2nd Piano Concerto. The rehearsal then goes on to put finishing touches on Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloe Suite Number 1 and finally Vincent D’Indy’s Symphony Number 2.

All in all, a pretty upbeat and downright jovial rehearsal which, by what appears from most of these recordings seems to be a common thing with Charles Munch and his work with the BSO.

Sadly, not a complete concert and regrettably not more of the Tcherepnin, but a welcome glimpse, as always, into the inner-workings of an orchestra at rehearsal.

More next week.
