Notes and Editorial Reviews

Maestro Mehta recorded both these works with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra in the '70's - performances full of enthusiasm and lightning. Notwithstanding the high quality of those recordings, we decided to record the Maestro conducting these works again, this time with the IPO. It is interesting to note the depth of the interpretation and the maturity which this veteran conductor has acquired over the years, especially in Strauss' post-romantic 'Zarathustra' - music which has always been his favourite 'playing field', from which he grew and to which he always returns.
