A special post this week. On the occasion of the annual United Nations Day Concert, held on October 24th. This one is from 1964 and features the London Symphony conducted by Sir Georg Solti with Issac Stern, solo violin. The LSO, playing the United Nations General Assembly as part of their 1964 world tour play music of Max Bruch and Benjamin Britten. The Bruch Violin concerto (with Stern) and the Britten Young Person's Guide To The Orchestra. After the music is a short address by Secretary General U Thant.
Something a bit different this week, and probably not heard in a very long time.
