This disc enshrines performances of considerable historical significance – the Bartok Concerto for Orchestra (commissioned by Koussevitzky) is of the second performance of this masterpieces, and Stravinsky’s Ode (similarly commissioned by Koussevitzky) is of the world premiere itself. The brilliance of the Boston Symphony Orchestra – which Serge Koussevitzky had fashioned since 1924 – is demonstrated in superlative fashion in Richard Strauss’s Don Juan and in Carl Maria von Weber’s overture Oberon
