This week’s release is the first in a new series devoted to a familiar conductor. Hot on the heels of our critically acclaimed releases devoted to Eugene Ormandy’s early years with the Philadelphia Orchestra, we are excited to bring you the first complete reissue of his trailblazing recordings with the Minneapolis Symphony. These featured many discographic firsts, as well as repertoire which Ormandy never repeated on disc during his many years in Philadelphia.
These fabulous new transfers were made for Pristine by Mark Obert-Thorn, who particularly enjoyed the Grainger, Enescu and Rachmaninov works, each of which exhibit the youthful energy and élan brought to them by their then 34-year-old conductor.
