An exhibition of French musical pictures imortalised by Charles Münch (1891-1968), who succeeded Serge Koussevitzky as conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It comprises unpublished works as well as historic recordings which have lost none of their intoxicating power, such as César Franck s frenzied Hunt, Debussy s (not so gallant) 'Fêtes' or Ravel s famous brooding waltz.
