5.0 out of 5 stars Cult status recital! Jan. 31 2011
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The brief presence of Mitropulos as chief conductor of the NYP elicited the best praises during an era of colossus of the baton. It's undeniable the influence received by the young Leonard Bernstein by then. And this concert was quite famous at its time and still on.

This unique document brings together two of the greatest musicians of their day in a complete Carnegie Hall New York concert from April 1953. We will hear the great pianist Arthur Rubinstein in two concertos - the Saint-Saëns Second Concerto in G minor and Cesar Franck's Symphonic Variations. At the time of this 1953 concert, Dmitri Mitropoulos was the chief conductor of the New York Philharmonic, and this equally great musician's qualities are heard to their best advantage in profoundly sympathetic and penetrating accounts of two colourful Russian scores, especial interest being placed on Scriabin's Poem of Ecstasy, first heard in New York in 1908.

This is a fascinating and very important single CD of great historical interest.
