While we’re still working on more BSO rehearsals, we unearthed a concert you might enjoy. It features the venerable Charles Munch at the helm, with Spanish Soprano Victoria de Los Angeles in a program of music by Mozart and Berlioz.
Starting off with Mozart’s Symphony Number 39 in e-Flat Major, and ending with Berlioz’ Les Nuits d’été. It’s only an hour, but that was the time allotted for this weekly broadcast of the BSO, from April 9, 1955 via Ben Grauer and the NBC Radio Network.
Enjoy and remember you don’t have to go to work tomorrow . . . . well, some of you don’t.
