*world première recording
Eduard van Beinum followed in the footsteps of Sir Thomas Beecham in 1949, becoming only the second musician to hold the Principal Conductorship of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. This disc - extending a limited catalogue of issued van Beinum recordings - demonstrates something of the conductor's eclecticism, enthusiasm for British music and ability to draw from his mid-century London Philharmonic Orchestra performances of the highest quality.
