RAVEL: Piano Concerto in G. D'INDY: Symphony on a French Mountain Air, Op. 25. Nicole Henriot-Schweitzer, piano/Boston Symphony Orch/Charles Munch, cond. Pristine audio pasc 368 tt: 76:25. This fascinating Pristine Audio CD offers a treasure, a live performance of Symphony No. 8 from a concert in Boston's Tanglewood Berkshire Festival August 2, 1958. This is the first time this performance has appeared on CD, unique in that it features neither a British conductor nor a British orchestra-perhaps a moot point. This is a fresh insightful performance of music that had its premiere May 2, 1956 with Sir John Barbirolli and the Hallé Orchestra.
Nicole Henriot-Schweitzer studied under Marguerite Long at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris, being awarded her first prize in piano in 1938. The following year, in 1939, she won third prize in the Gabriel Fauré competition in Luxembourg. Ginette Doyen was the second prize winner and Georges Farago, about whom I know nothing, took first prize. Nicole Henriot-Schweitzer began her concert career after WWII. In 1958 she married an admiral of the French Navy, himself a nephew of the renowned Albert Schweitzer, and on his mother's side of the great conductor.

William Primrose (viola), Nicole Henriot-Schweitzer (piano)Boston SO/Charles Munch. Label: RCA Victor Gold Seal. Munch, who as a violinist played in the Gewandhaus Orchestra under Furtwängler and Walter, was a conductor who rarely got things wrong. He gave charismatic performances in the concert hall and, with the Boston SO, taken over from Koussevitzky, made some of the most legendary recordings to have come out of postwar America. As this welcome reissue reminds us, his French repertoire was potent and full-blooded
This album is included in the following sets: MUNCH The Complete New York Philharmonic Recordings (1947/48) - PASC448. The Mozart Symphony, Liszt Concerto, and Chabrier arrangement are prefaced on disc two of this set by a spoken introduction to the radio broadcast by Deems Taylor. Munch takes the Haffner Symphony at a good clip, but his reading sounds a bit formally stiff. The conductor doesn’t sound quite as comfortable or as unbuttoned as he is in the concerto with Casadesus. The New York Philharmonic, however, gives Munch playing of unparalleled discipline, and for a radio broadcast, the sound is really very good.
