Overview

Venerated conductor Sir Thomas Beecham is featured conducting the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal in this release of a rare television broadcast that originally aired on Canadian television on March 22, 1956. A performance of George Frideric Handel's "Amaryllis Suite" gets the evening of music off to an appropriately majestic start, with subsequent renditions of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Vorrei spiegarvi, oh dio, K. 418," "Voi avete un cor fedele, K. 217" (featuring soprano Maria Stader), and "Symphony No. 38 in D, 'Prague'" offering auditory proof of the maestro's remarkable rapport with his musicians.
