The ICA Classics Legacy series represents an historic account of performances by some of the world's greatest artists. This video features some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and their Music Director, Charles Munch.

All three works featured on this video are well suited to Munch and his Alsatian heritage. He received prolonged and enthusiastic applause from the Boston audience following the performance of Franck's Symphony in D minor, whilst the Faure Pelleas et Melisande shows him as a true master of French music.
