DVD0136. PIERRE MONTEUX Cond. Boston S.O.: Tragic Overture (Brahms); Noblissima Visione (Hindemith); Petrouchka (Original Version) (Stravinsky). VAI 4316, Live Performance, 20 Jan., 1959, Sanders Theatre, Cambridge. - 089948431695
"Toscanini remarked that Pierre Monteux had the finest baton technique of any conductor he knew, and watching him is a fascinating experience. All cueing, phrasing, tempo and dynamic problems have been solved long ago as the 84-year-old effortlessly guides the Boston Symphony through Brahms, Hindemith and the twists and turns of Petrushka. To have a filmed record of the man who conducted the premiere [of the latter] is of immense importance…."
