This series of DVDs will make the publicly broadcast BSO concerts from this era available for the first time since they were broadcast.

This rare material, filmed in colour, represents some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and William Steinberg, and has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques. It is of exceptional musical interest and historic value.

The BSO's Music Director for just three seasons, Steinberg spent a great deal of time in the USA, having left Europe following Music Director positions in Cologne, Prague and Frankfurt. He also co-founded the Palestine Orchestra, later the Israel Philharmonic. His time with the BSO came at the end of his career following his position as the Music Director of Pittsburgh Symphony, which he held for over twenty years.

Steinberg's precise and minimalist technique belies the intensity with which the orchestra responds to his baton - the performances are lively and full of character.

Steinberg's CD release of Mahler's Second Symphony on ICA Classics has received excellent reviews, described by Gramophone as 'a startlingly direct statement of a score that is too often treated to extremes of mood and tempo' - and by Classics Today as having 'moments that set a new standard in this music'.

The Haydn is new to Steinberg's discography. Two of ICA's BSO DVDs featuring Charles Munch as conductor, have been awarded the Diapason d'Or in France's Diapason magazine.
