ROSSINI-RESPIGHI: La Boutique Fantasque/Leibowitz/Part-2 of


"The Magic Toy Shop". Rare. Rene Leibowitz conducts The London Philharmonic Orchestra (1958) ------------------------ Rene Leibowitz (1913-1972) was born in Warsaw but moved to Paris in his teens and there began a long, illustrious conducting career. Particularly interested in contemporary music, he studied with Webern and Schoenberg and wrote a detailed analysis of twelve-tone music. A keen ear for instrumental coloration (Ravel was his orchestration teacher) was evident in his kaleidoscopic transcriptions of such works as Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C (for double orchestra!). But he is best known for his often highly personal renditions of many staples of the Classical and Romantic repertoire.
