“With the virtuoso London Symphony Orchestra, Monteux creates an accompaniment for Szeryng that is completely accommodating but still richly symphonic. Together, they have created a performance emotionally satisfying and musically fulfilling, a performance among the finest ever recorded.” — AllMusic (on Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 77)

The legendary Pierre Monteux made his name in Paris collaborating with Stravinsky, Debussy and Ravel and premiering many of their greatest works, including Petrushka (heard here in a 1959 recording by the Boston Symphony Orchestra). Here, over 8 discs, hear Monteux’s complete RCA stereo recordings, including remarkable recordings by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and San Francisco Symphony.
