Rehearsing Symphony #10
Here's the first video from the complete symphony series now under way in São Paulo: Isaac Karabtchevsky rehearses Symphony #10 with the São Paulo Symphony (OSESP) and Chorus. There's more information on the BIS recording project here.
The 10th Symphony, written in 1952 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the founding of São Paulo, is very well represented on CD. There are three excellent recordings, from Harmonia Mundi, Koch International, and cpo.
