"The Chicago Symphony is one of the greatest orchestras I have ever conducted, and I have had no greater glory in music than I have experienced here." With those words, Seiji Ozawa singled out the significance of his Ravinia Festival tenure and ensuing collaboration with the CSO. Between 1965 and 1968, Seiji Ozawa and the orchestra made a series of remarkable albums for RCA. Collected here, these recordings represent an early high point in the Japanese maestro's long and distinguished recording career.
