More Boston Symphony rehearsals this week. This time it’s The BSO and their Music Director Charles Munch rehearsing the Berlioz Requiem, as broadcast on April 21, 1951.

Mentioned by announcer Ben Grauer that this work hadn’t been performed by The BSO in over 70 years. It’s a huge work, which probably explains why it hasn’t been performed more often.

For a half-hour the amassed Orchestra and Chorus run through the piece and we get a fly-on-the-wall glimpse of the proceedings.

Enjoy, as always.
