Bernard Haitink conductor
London Philharmonic Orchestra
John Alldis Choir
Recorded by BBC Radio 3 at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, London on 6 November 1979.
• LPO-0059 is a wonderfully luminous recording with the chorus nicely positioned, which creates an evocative distance to their recorded sound
• Haitink uncovers the sensuous beauty in Ravel’s masterwork.
• Haitink has recorded numerous Ravel discs in his career both with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
• This release is of a previously unavailable live concert recorded towards the end of Haitink’s tenure as Principal Conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra
• Haitink’s live releases on the LPO label all meet with high critical acclaim the most recent release being Shostakovich Symphony No. 10 (LPO-0034)
• With very few complete recordings available, this release is well placed to become the standout interpretation in the catalogue.
