about

The first volume in our projected series devoted to the British conductor Percy Pitt – the first music director of the British National Opera Company and of the BBC, and much admired by Richard Strauss, Elgar and Beecham. Here he conducts operatic selections by Bizet, Saint-Saëns, Thomas, Delibes, Wagner, Mendelssohn and Suppé. Great restorations of the rare original 78 discs allow for Pitt's very considerable art to be heard in all its glory – prepare to be swept off your turntable!
