BOULT The NBC Recordings

This is a very exciting release: Sir Adrian Boult's only two broadcast concerts with the NBC Symphony Orchestra in astonishingly fine sound quality, from May 1938. These never-before-released recordings include the US premières of Walton's Viola Concerto with William Primrose and Copland's El Salón México.

There's an excellent performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, and a superb collection of more English music: Elgar's Enigma Variations, Vaughan Williams' Symphony No. 4, Butterworth's A Shropshire Lad Rhapsody and Holst's A Fugal Concerto. There's even room for Busoni's Comedy Overture.

Hear for the first time the sound of a young NBC orchestra under the baton of the conductor of its inspiration, the BBC Symphony Orchestra - it really is very special indeed!
