P.I. TCHAIKOVSKI: Symphony No. 6, Pathétique, op. 74
Boston Symphony Orchestra

Charles Munch conducted 1477 concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra between 18 November 1947 and 25 January 1968. Although his basic repertoire included composers such as Berlioz, Debussy, Ravel and Roussel, he didn’t shun German music, particularly Brahms and Tchaikovsky’s symphonies. The present CD includes a concert given in Boston on 29 September 1961 (previously unissued).

Previously unissued recordings of Charles Munch and Paul Paray

Tah 710/711 - Previously unissued recordings of Charles Munch and Paul Paray


CD I: Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 20, KV 466 - Ravel: Concerto for the left hand (Boston Symphony Orchestra, Charles Munch conducting, piano Monique Haas - 11.XI.1960)
CD II: Bach: Piano Concerto in D minor(Piano Monique Haas - 8.XII.1960) - Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 2 in B flat major (piano Robert Casadesus - 11.XI.1960 - Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Paul Paray conducting)

There was a time in which three French conductors headed great American orchestras: Pierre Monteux in San Francisco (1936-1952), Charles Munch in Boston (1949-1962), and Paul Paray in Detroit (1951-1962).
We were lucky to be able to reunite in the present album four previously unissued recordings made in Boston with Munch and in Detroit with Paray. Also the pianists are French: Monique Haas and Robert Casadesus. And as a special bonus, the Mozart KV 466 and the Bach concerto are works that appear here for the first time in Monique Haas’ discography.

In Memoriam Ginette Neveu

Tah 684 - In Memoriam Ginette Neveu


Interview (5.III.1949) - Beethoven: Violin Concerto (excerpts) / Südwestfunk-Orchester, Hans Rosbaud conducting (25.IX.1949) - Brahms: Violin Concerto (excerpts) / NWDR-Sinfonieorchester, Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt conducting (3.V.1948) - Chausson: Poem for violin and orchestra / New York Phailharmonic, Charles Munch conducting (2.I.1949) - Sibelius: Violin Concerto (excerpts) / Philharmonia Orchestra, Walter Süsskind conducting (21.XI.1945)

On 28 October 1949, barely aged 30 Ginette Neveu died in an airplane crash in the Azores Islands, (the French boxer Marcel Cerdan was also on that airplane) while she was heading for the United States for a tour with her brother Jean. That happened 60 years ago: to commemorate this tragic loss, we release the present CD that comprises excerpts of the Beethoven, Brahms and Sibelius concerts as well as the Chausson Poem.
We have added a very rare document: a short interview of Ginette Neveu.

Clara Haskil plays Beethoven

Tah 634 - Clara Haskil plays Beethoven

L. van Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3, op. 37 (Boston Symphony Orchestra, Charles Munch conducting - Recorded Live 3.XI.1956) - Piano Concerto No. 4, op. 58 (Studio-Orchester Beromünster, Erich Schmid conducting - Recorded 25.I.1959)

Although Clara Haskil “was sent on earth to play Mozart”, she is a great Beethoven performer as prove the recordings of these two concertos: the Third concerto that she gave in a live concert in Boston under Charles Munch, and the Fourth concerto, a studio recording of the Swiss Radio and never issued before.
