Weekend Gramophone with Manuel Rosenthal conducting Orchestre National de Radio France in a 1955 broadcast performance of Chabrier's Suite Pastorale.
June 27, 2011

Manuel Rosenthal - considered by many to be the last link to Parisian Musical life in the 1920's.

Back over to the French Radio Transcription Services for this 1955 studio broadcast performance of Chabrier's Suite Pastorale as played by Orchestre National de Radio France conducted by music icon Manuel Rosenthal.

Rosenthal was an integral part in the French musical landscape of the 1920's and 1930's. He was responsible for many a premier and was very active in recording as well as live performances throughout the world from the 1920s onward. His death in 2003 robbed the musical world of an important and vital voice in French music.

A nice way to end out the weekend . . if I do say so myself.
