Charles Munch conducts Schumann and Schubert Boston Symphony Orchestra


During his thirtheen years as music director in Boston, Charles Munch explored a wide range of repertoire from de Baroque (Bach was a particular passion) to the contemporary. Robert Schumann's Symphony No. 2 entered the repertoire of the Boston Symphony Orchestra in its first season in 1881, and the orchestra has since played it frequently under twenty-five different conductors, including most of the music directors from Sir George Henschel to James Levine. Charles Munch greatly admired the work and programmed it in four different Boston Symphony Orchestra seasons.
