    Less than one year after Michael Tilson Thomas’s first appointment with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, a series of concerts were filmed for television that demonstrate an electric relationship with the orchestra’s newest assistant conductor. Featuring Three Places in New England by Charles Ives, a composer whom Tilson Thomas has long since championed, as well as two works that are completely new to his discography and videography, this DVD gives a valuable account of his early performances with the BSO. Exclusive bonus interviews with this dynamic Maestro provide a fascinating insight into the performances captured here on film.

    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."
