Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony

November 23, 2013

In 1979, the conductor Leonard Slatkin began a 17-year tenure as music director of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. During those year, Slatkin  and that orchestra issued a series of recordings that raised the St. Louis ensemble to the ranks of one of the 10 best orchestras in the United States. Due to the decline in classical recording, that feat may not be duplicated in a very long time. We'll sample some of their recordings.
