Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a major surprise, for followers of both the renowned Entremont and the beloved Monteux. In 1958 both recorded the Tchaikovsky Concerto in London (presumably for Decca?), but due to a change of record company (you will recall that Entremont was one of Columbiaís rising stars in the late 1950ís and 1960ís) and to respect his contract this recording was never published, until now. Both a pianist and conductor, Philippe Entremont was President from 1974 to 1980 of the Academy Ravel in St.-Jean-de Luz. He has been Director of the Nadia Boulanger Conservatoire in Fontainebleau for twenty years. In addition to his classic piano performances over the years (remember the terrific Rachmaninov works he did with Ormandy?), he has also recorded Read more as a conductor, most memorably, an Erik Satie album for Columbia. For fans of historical recordings, this will be an absolute must. Read less
