Eugene Ormandy: The Complete RCA Album Collection - Eugene Ormandy [CD/7" Vinyl Boxset]

$55.00
Description

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Eugene Ormandy is the Philadelphia Orchestra, of which he was chief conductor for over forty years. But for many connoisseurs, his earlier years as musical director of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra are also particularly valuable. In 1934 and 1935 he made more than 170 shellac recordings for RCA Victor, which are now being re-released in their entirety for the first time. There are many rarities on the 11 CDs, such as the first American studio recording of a Bruckner symphony (the Seventh), Mahler's Second, which set standards for a long time and is still haunting, Ormandy's only recording of Schumann's Fourth, but also many later Ormandys -Classics in their fresh, early form, such as Rachmaninoff's Second and Sibelius' First Symphonies, such as the world premiere recordings of Kodály's Háry János Suite, the orchestral version of Schönberg's Transfigured Night and Honegger's Concertino for piano and orchestra. 53 works alone appear on CD for the first time, technically excellent remastered from the original templates.
