During his long career, Paul Paray (1886-1979) conducted various American orchestras (from 1939 in New-York), and particularly in Detroit where he was musical director from 1951 to 1962. He gave more than 240 concerts in « Motor City » and over 110 concerts on tour. The interest of these three Live documents recorded in 1959 and 1960, resides in the fact the Paray’s recording label Mercury didn’t make any commercial recording of these works. It is of particular interest to discover his vision of the famous Mahler Fifth and specially of the famous adagietto.

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.
