Back to the vault this week for something historic by way of the Los Angeles Philharmonic from the 1960s. Guest conducted by the great Hans Swarowsky and featuring legendary Pianist Claudio Arrau in a concert of music by Brahms, Alban Berg and Zoltan Kodaly. This previously unheard, never-broadcast and long-thought-lost concert was recorded on January 26, 1967.
Since it’s a little under 2 hours, it’s on two players. And here’s what’s what:
Part 1 – Brahms: Piano Concerto Number 1 (w/Arrau)
Part 2 – Berg: Three Symphonic Excerpts from Lulu
Kodaly: Dances from Galanta
Enjoy and stay tuned for more historic goodies in the coming weeks. There’s lots more. I promise.
