 From 1964 to 1968, during their first four seasons, the original membership of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players made a series of historic recordings for RCA, including works central to the chamber music repertoire, as well as music by some of the day's leading composers. To mark the 50th anniversary of the ensemble, BSO Classics, in association with Sony Music (current copyright owners of the recordings), is pleased to offer these outstanding recordings previously unissued in digital format as downloads, in digitally re-mastered, pristine sound. 

This first of four releases encompasses the contents of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players' very first commercial release, the Grammy-winning, three-LP set issued by RCA in 1966 music of Mozart, Brahms, Beethoven, and American composers Irving Fine, Aaron Copland, Elliott Carter, and Walter Piston. The re-release of these recordings has been supported by a generous gift from the Ulf B. Heide and Elizabeth C. Heide Foundation.
