Los Angeles Philharmonic – Sixten Ehrling, guest Cond. – Itzhak Perlman, violin – February 17, 1966 – Gordon Skene Sound Collection.

Another classic and long-lost concert this week from the vault. The Los Angeles Philharmonic, guest conducted by Sixten Ehrling and featuring the then-wunderkind violinst Itzhak Perlman in a concert of music by Paul Creston, Max Bruch and Dmitri Shostakovich. It was recorded, but never broadcast, on February 17, 1966 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

Opening with Paul Creston’s Invocation And Dance – followed by Max Bruch’s Concerto in G minor for Violin and Orchestra, with Itzhak Perlman – and ending with Shostakovich’s Symphony Number 5.

Another drop-dead rarity, just a shade under 90 minutes – with no announcements, but in very nice stereo.

Enjoy – especially since it’s Anti-Road Rage Wednesday and we’re coming up on rush hour in some places.
