The long-time dictator of the Boston Symphony appeared at Carnegie hall in early 1942 in a series of historic concerts that breathed new life into the moribund New York Philharmonic. TIME Magazine had nicknamed them “The Dead End Kids”, and Koussevitzky had just two weeks to whip this recalcitrant band of notorious musical delinquents into shape. The orchestra had flourished under Toscanini, but Barbirolli allowed performance standards to slip precipitously, and quite a few of the younger members had been called up for military service and were replaced by new players. This new release documents this difficult period in the New York Phil’s history.
