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

Munch gave extensive performances of Brahms' Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2 during his time at the Boston Symphony, particularly during the orchestra's many national and international tours. His readings of both works exhibit his characteristic energy and enthusiasm, which, coupled with the BSO's distinctive sound, makes for a captivating recording.
