Beecham - All Mozart Concert (1947)




A rare (unpublished, I think) All Mozart Concert with Beecham's second wife at the piano + broadcast announcements and brief intros to each work by Sir Thomas.

Btw, The RPO gave his first concert in 1946 (sept 15).
So, one of the oldest documents of STB on the podium of his latest "creature".
