Notes and Editorial Reviews

A special chemistry develops between Kurt Masur and the IPO, as the orchestra gives the octogenarian maestro a warm welcome and he responds with the energy which typified his time with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. Maestro Masur holds the lifetime title of Honorary Guest Conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and this was a unique opportunity to record Maestro Masur and the IPO in concert together.
