Rach/ Prokof: Andre Previn

Add To Wish List + £19.99 - Item is discontinued.

Andre Previn (b.1929) is often hailed as one of the world's most versatile musicians. The recipient of ten Grammy awards for his recordings, he has conducted many of the world's top orchestras, both in concert performances and in the studio. All three of the performances on this DVD took place during Previn's tenure as Principal Conductor of the LSO - the Prokofiev was filmed as part of the popular BBC television series 'Andre Previn's Music Night'. This footage of Rachmaninov's 'The Bells' documents the first Proms performance of this work in 1973, featuring three stellar British singers, Sheila Armstrong, Robert Tear and John Shirley-Quirk and a precise and energetic London Symphony Chorus. The Penguin Guide describes Previn's performance of 'The Bells' on EMI, recorded just two years after the performance on this DVD, as 'powerful' due to his 'concentration on purely musical values [which] adds much as on the evocation of atmosphere'. Previn used the same three soloists. This is the first DVD release of this material.
