  • Eugene Ormandy was best known for his relationship with the Philadelphia Orchestra, for which he served as Musical Director from 1936 until 1980. Under his direction, the Philadelphia Orchestra became known for its warm, textured Romantic "Philadelphia Sound"

  • The DVD features a number of works from Ormandy's favourite Russian repertoire in the years just preceding his retirement. Among as highlights Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto with Itzhak Perlman as soloist and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition

  • This recording of the concerto from Philadelphia, made when Itzhak Perlman was 34, corroborates violin expert Tully Potter's New Grove contention that Perlman is "one of the greatest musical talents to emerge since World War II" and that "he has dominated the last quarter of the 20th century with performances ranging from the scintillating to the Olympian."
