From the Broadcast Archives: 1943-2000; Music Directors - William Steinberg (Digital)
Boston Symphony Orchestra
William Steinberg was music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1969 to 1973, and renowned for his performances of Bruckner. The conductor is represented here by a single large work—the composer’s monumental Symphony No. 8, this recording of which is notable for its majesty, wisdom, warmth, and skill, in stunningly rich sound deriving from the original quadraphonic source.
