Pierre Monteux in Brahms: Tragic Overture

Brahms: Tragic Overture

1959 NR

Legendary French conductor Pierre Monteux enjoyed a long relationship with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, but this 1959 concert is the only one ever captured on film. In addition to Brahms's "Tragic" Overture, Monteux presides over a historically significant performance of Stravinsky's "Petrouchka," whose world premiere in Paris in 1911 was conducted by none other than Monteux himself.
