The ICA Classics Legacy series represents a historical account of performances by some of the world's greatest artists. This video features some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and their Music Director Charles Munch.

While the material has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques, certain visual artefacts and distortions remain in some instances due to the age of the film. Despite this, it remains of exceptional musical interest and historic value.

Programmed by Munch during his years at the Boston Symphony but never recorded, his renderings of the two works featured on this video are exciting and spontaneous with the kind of precision and flair we have come to expect from the BSO under the buoyant direction of their charismatic music director.
