Album · 1995 · 19 Songs. Greatest Hits - Mendelssohn Cleveland Orchestra. Listen on Apple Music. 90 "Italian": I. Allegro Vivace. Eugene Ormandy & The Philadelphia Orchestra. 2. Scherzo from a Midsummer Night's Dream, Op. 61. Ensemble Wien-Berlin, Wolfgang Schulz, Karl Leister, Hansjörg Schellenberger, Milan Turkovic & Günter Högner.

Performer: Philippe Entremont. Orchestra: New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra. Conductor: Eugene Ormandy, Leonard Bernstein, William Smith. One day I found an album called "Gems for Orchestra" (London Symphony Orchestra, Stanley Black) with various great orchestral classics, and among them the highlight was Debussy's Clair de Lune. I thought then that was the most beautiful piece of music I had ever heard in my life, and I still think it is (although now that I'm in my forties I'm aware there are other pieces that might have a similar ranking in my heart). I am a huge admirer of conductor Eugene Ormandy, and the Philadelphia sound is quite impressive in this piece, but as I said, a bit too overwhelming in my opinion. Afternoon of a Faun: The three last tracks in this CD are performances by the New York Philharmonic with Leonard Bernstein as conductor.

Ormandy's 44-year tenure with the Philadelphia Orchestra began in 1936 and became the source of much of his lasting reputation and fame. Two years after his appointment as associate conductor under Leopold Stokowski, he became its music director. Stokowski continued to conduct some concerts in Philadelphia until 1941; he returned as a guest conductor in 1960. In 1978, he conducted the New York Philharmonic in a performance of Sergei Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3, with Vladimir Horowitz as soloist for a live recording.

The high point of Rachmaninoff’s relationship with The Philadelphia Orchestra was the 1939 Rachmaninoff Cycle, a series of all-Rachmaninoff concerts given by Eugene Ormandy and the Orchestra in Carnegie Hall in New York City in November and December of 1939, with similar concerts in the Academy of Music in Philadelphia in the same period. Conceived and directed by Ormandy in consultation with the composer, these concerts featured the 66-year-old Rachmaninoff in various roles as pianist, conductor, and special guest
