Berlioz (1803-1869)


The memorable first SP recording of Munsch's many fantasy symphonies is restored with the vivid sound of direct transfer! The "Bolero", in which the virtuosity of the Orchestre de la Conservatoire de Paris in the early postwar period can be heard, is also coupled with the Berlioz, a record that won the French Disc Award in 1950. The first of several recordings of Munsch's "Fantasie". Charles Munch (1891-1968) was born in Strasbourg. His family was a musical family and he was a nephew of Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965). After studying organ at the conservatory in his hometown, he studied violin at the Paris Conservatory with Lucien Capet (1873-1828). In 1926, he was appointed professor at the Leipzig Conservatory.From 1928-32 he was solo first violinist of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, playing with Bruno Walter (1876-1962) and Wilhelm Furtwängler (1886-1954), where he also learned conducting. Returning to Paris, he made his debut as conductor of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Paris in 1935; in 1938 he was appointed professor of violin at the Ecole Normale; in 1938 he was invited to conduct the Orchestre de Paris, and in 1939 he was appointed professor of conducting there. 1949. In 1949, he toured the United States with the New York Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and succeeded Koussevitzky (1874-1951) as the regular conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, a post he held until 1962. This is a rare SP recording made in Paris just before he left for Boston.Ravel was recorded during a tour of England with the Orchestre de la Conservatoire de Paris in 1946, Munsch's first recording for the English Decca label. This is a wonderful recording made at the time when Decca's ffrr recordings were beginning to take off in earnest, and it features the virtuoso musicians of the Paris Conservatory, whose virtuosity is unmistakable.
