More rehearsals with The Boston Symphony this week. Charles Munch leads the BSO in a rehearsal of Bruckner’s Symphony Number 7, in a live broadcast from March 10, 1951. If I correctly remember, Charles Munch and The BSO never recorded this symphony commercially. I am sure several keen-eyed readers will set me straight on that if I’m wrong.

But in any event, enjoy this half-hour glimpse of an orchestra at work on one of the great symphonies of our time.

More next week.

    That is totally correct Gordon: as far as I know there is no commercial recording of any symphony by Bruckner under Munch. A concert has been recorded with these players. I remember unusual fast tempi……let us hear what Munch ask in this rehearsal that you kindly post !!

      Thanks so much Jean. I try very hard to give people history that sounds good. And my feeling also is – if you love music you’ll love all kinds – the only criteria is that it’s good.
