    This rare audiovisual footage presents Klaus Tennstedt at the height of his very special relationship with the Boston Symphony Orchestra during his prime recording period. Joyous Mozart is combined with evocative Mahler, both performed with the greatest sensitivity and conviction. The ICA Classics Legacy series represents an historic account of performances by some of the world’s greatest artists. This DVD features only the second public release of a full-length symphonic work with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Klaus Tennstedt and the third DVD available with this mighty conductor. While the material has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques, certain visual artefacts and distortions remain in some instances due to the age of the film. Despite this, it remains of exceptional musical interest and historic value and is released here for the first time on DVD.

    Tennstedt duly made his US debut in December 1974, conducting the Boston Symphony Orchestra in an all-Brahms programme and then in Bruckner's Symphony No.8. A legend was born and a career was made. One headline the next day ran: "Bruckner – Tennstedt – BSO – Once in a Lifetime."

Despite this, it remains of exceptional musical interest and historic value and is released here for the first time on DVD. A great admirer of Schumann’s Second Symphony, Charles Munch programmed the work in four different Boston Symphony Orchestra seasons, taking it on tour on each occasion. He never recorded the symphony with the BSO nor with any other orchestra, which makes this exciting DVD a new addition to his discography.

    Munch gave extensive performances of Brahms’ symphonies 1 and 2 during his time at the Boston Symphony, particularly during the orchestra’s many national and international tours. His readings of both works exhibit his characteristic energy and enthusiasm, which, coupled with the BSO’s distinctive sound, makes for a captivating DVD.

    Programmed by Munch during his years at the Boston Symphony but never recorded, his renderings of the two works featured on this DVD are exciting and spontaneous with the kind of precision and flair we have come to expect from the BSO under the buoyant direction of their charismatic Music Director.

    This performance of extracts from The Creatures of Prometheus is a rare one, Munch having only conducted the ballet at the BSO in one season. He breathes life into his performances of Symphonies No.4 and 5, which are executed with excitement, exuberance and panache.

    All three works featured on this DVD are well suited to Munch and his Alsatian heritage. He received prolonged and enthusiastic applause from the Boston audience following the performance of the Franck Symphony, whilst the Fauré shows him as a true master of French music.
