Click on the link here for Audio Player – NBC Radio – The Boston Symphony In Rehearsal – February 24, 1951 – Gordon Skene Sound Collection
It was broadcast on February 24, 1951.
One of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, it’s a rare occasion to hear Yehudi Menuhin in a rehearsal setting and this one, as always, provides a fly-on-the-wall to the proceedings and the process involved with solo artist and orchestra.
As with all the others from this series, there isn’t a complete performance of the concerto – sadly, the usual 1/2 hour snippet. But it’s a historic recording and another in a fascinating collection of classic broadcasts.
Enjoy and come back next week.
