Hallé Orchestra, André Navarra
All the facets of the artistry of the great orchestra conductor John Barbirolli as he conducts his orchestra: The Hallé Orchestra.
An Italian father (Lorenzo), a French mother (Louise Marie) and all the marks of an Englishman. Sir John Barbirolli, born in London in 1899, is a pure British product trained at Trinity College in London and the Royal Academy of Music. He is also a pure musical product: his father and his grandfather were violinists in the Orchestra del teatro alla Scala in Milan and they were at their music stands the night of the premiere of Verdi's Othello.
