HORENSTEIN in Venezuela

Jascha Horenstein made a number of trips to South America as a guest conductor, and here we begin documenting his time in Venezuela, with two concerts recorded in Caracas in 1957 with the Venezuela Symphony Orchestra.

There are three symphonies: Mozart's 39th, Prokofiev's 5th and Sibelius's 2nd, as well as the Egmont Overture from Beethoven and orchestral excerpts from Wagner's Lohengrin and Tristan und Isolde.

We also celebrate the birthday this week of legendary Swedish tenor, Jussi Björling, with an automatic discount on all our recordings of him.
