With a career spanning more than five decades, Thomas Beecham was one of the most important and influential conductors in England during the first half of the 20th century. He had a tendency, when dissatisfied with the musical scene in a given locale, to just form a new orchestra. As such, Beecham was responsible for the founding of both the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Beecham also had a penchant for unearthing little-known compositions, or performing less common versions of works. This EMI reissue features one of his favorite works, Grieg's incidental music to Peer Gynt. Most listeners are no doubt familiar with one or both of the orchestra suites Grieg extracted from the 23 total numbers, but Beecham presents listeners with much more. In addition to the 10 selections from the two suites, Beecham includes two additional movements and includes the little-heard choral parts from "In the Hall of the Mountain King" and "Arabian Dance" as well as the solo soprano parts from "Solveig's Song" and "Solveig's Lullaby".

The performance is certainly first rate, but (unlike the previous reviewer) I found the camera work coming between me and the music much of the time. Many camera changes and self-conscious panning and zooming do not add to the music. The ideal recording, for me at least, would involve a minimum of close ups, include all four performers in frame almost all the time, and little montage or heavy-handed editing. This recording calls attention to the camera placement and movement, whereas the best editing should generally go unnoticed, without artiness, without calling attention to itself. By Salsonero

By giving the stringed instruments the status of genuinely equal partners with the piano, it was Beethoven who gave the piano trio the form it was to retain throughout the 19th century. This album presents the composer's last two works in the genre, Op.70 No.2 dedicated to Countess Marie Erdödy, and the celebrated 'Archduke' trio, which marked the final public appearance of its composer.
