Monteux made no fewer than five celebrated recordings of the Second Symphony – his favourite. The interpretations have individuality, but not personal wilfulness, they always strive to be at the service of the music.

At one time, Pierre Monteux was such a fixture in San Francisco spectators riding on trolley cars could count on seeing this world-famous conductor walk his little poodle up the hill as a kind of a tourist attraction if they boarded at the right car at the right time of day. However, in 1952 Monteux's San Francisco contract expired; he was 77 years old and one might have thought this a good time to consider retirement. Decca's seven-CD Original Masters box Pierre Monteux: Decca & Philips Recordings 1956-1964 documents many of the high points dating from Monteux' European renaissance. One of the reasons Monteux was accorded such great respect in these years was his position as elder statesman in much of the material he led.

Sony Classical is proud to announce an unparalleled reissue of Pierre Monteux’s RCA Victor recordings. They are being issued together for the first time in a single original jacket collection of 40 CDs. Each and every recording in this new 40-CD set comes from the best source, including previous Living Stereo, SACD and XRCD reissues. His RCA French discography also contains multiple recordings of Debussy’s Images, La Mer and Nocturnes, Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique and works by Chausson and d’Indy. And then there is his peerless interpretation of the Franck D minor. Monteux recorded that symphony in San Francisco in 1941 and 1950, then once again with the Chicago Symphony in 1961. Those were his last RCA sessions, and the recording it yielded is still universally regarded as the work’s finest ever.
