The greatly-distinguished Greek-born conductor and pianist Dimitri Mitropoulos was one of the most widely-admired musicians in the immediate post-war period until his untimely death in 1960. From 1930, he was a welcome guest with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and in the late 1930s his career took a new turning on settling in the United States, where he became chief conductor of the Minneapolis and New York Philharmonic Orchestras. This outstanding new CD release of his performances of music by Tchaikovsky with the New York Philharmonic couples a truly superb account of the composer's Fifth Symphony with the brilliant Capriccio Italien, revealing Mitropoulos to have been one of the finest conductors of the Russian's music of his day. Excellent sound.
