Maestro Dimitri Mitropoulos

Dimitri Mitropoulos was an extraordinarily gifted musician. Although he was an enormous success as conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony in the 1930s, his tenure as conductor of the New York Philharmonic ended in failure in the 1950s. Elsewhere, at the same time, he was regarded as a highly esteemed maestro. We will hear some of his extensive legacy of recordings.
