SILVESTRI, Constantin - PO - UK - HMV ASD 338 W&G EW1 Label, Recorded in 1960. Seldom seen. This is one of his majestic recordings. In Romania and Eastern Europe, before he moved to the West, Silvestri recorded about 20 LPs, often with a repertoire that he never recorded again later. Among the recordings for which he is best known are Edward Elgar Overture In the South (Alassio) and Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony. His recordings have been awarded the First Prize of the Académie (for Charles Cros Antonín Dvořák's Symphony No. 9, "From the New World") and the Grand Prix Du Disque (for George Enescu's Dixtuor for winds). - Saulo Zucchello
