Pierre Monteux was an occasional guest conductor over several decades with The Philadelphia Orchestra, and these relatively rare appearances resulted in four broadcasts - three in 1945 and one, in stereo, in 1960.
This release brings together previously unheard recordings of Prokofiev's Romeo & Juliet Suite No. 1 from the first broadcast - a piece new to the conductor's catalogue - together with the complete final broadcast of 1960, featuring Brahms' Tragic Overture, Hindemith's Mathis der Maler Symphony and Schubert's 'Great' 9th Symphony in superb stereo sound.
