This release of five compact discs celebrates the long association that the distinguished conductor Sir Adrian Boult enjoyed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, from his tenure as Principal Conductor (1950-57) to his retirement in 1978. These recordings show Sir Adrian as a conductor of classics such as the Beethoven symphony, but embracing what was then considered contemporary music by Béla Bartók , and as a conductor of ballet music and a supporter of music by composers of his own country.

 
Discs included:

Early Years with the London Philharmonic Orchestra
Beethoven and Beyond
Music from the Ballet
