Boston Symphony Chamber Players

[ Sony / RCA Red Seal / 10 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Saturday 26 August 2023

Sony Classical are pleased to present a stunning new 10 CD boxset - the complete RCA Victor Recordings of The Boston Symphony Chamber Players, presented for the first time on CD.

It was inevitable that the Boston Symphony - hailed as "The Aristocrat of Orchestras" in the early '60s by RCA Victor, its long-time record company - would spin off an ensemble from its elite roster of principals. The Boston Symphony Chamber Players were duly launched in 1964 during the Austrian conductor Erich Leinsdorf's music directorship. Starting that October, RCA Victor recorded them regularly in Symphony Hall until the orchestra changed labels at the end of the decade. By then, ten LPs of chamber music had been issued in four critically acclaimed releases. Sony Classical is now pleased to present all these recordings for the first time on CD.
