A great admirer of Schumann's Second Symphony, Charles Munch programmed the work in four different Boston Symphony Orchestra seasons, taking it on tour on each occasion. He never recorded the symphony with the BSO nor with any other orchestra, which makes this exciting DVD a new addition to his discography.

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