Prominent in the musical evolution of 20th century France, Charles Munch (1891-1968) also spent 13 epoch-making years with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This collection assembles newly-remastered versions all the recordings he made for EMI and Erato in the 1930s, 1940s and 1960s. The repertoire ranges wide and the 1965 recording of Roussel's Suite in F makes its first appearance on CD.
Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique - a Munch speciality - features twice. The version from 1967 marked the recording debut of the newly-established Orchestre de Paris under its inaugural Music Director.
