One of the great British conductors of the 20th century, Sir Adrian Boult studied under the legendary Arthur Nikisch in Berlin, which makes his Brahms’s interpretations so special. This fiery 1976 stereo broadcast of Brahms Symphony No.1 is the only authorised live account available. The broadcast of Elgar’s Enigma Variations from the Royal Albert Hall in 1971 features the alternative organ part played by George Thalben-Ball, one of the most celebrated organists of his time. The CD also includes interview material with Boult on the occasion of his 85th birthday.
