This week, the New York Philharmonic opened it’s new season of concerts; which has WNYC’s Sara Fishko looking back at a New York Phil concert of long ago – one which featured a great conductor, an adventurous soloist – and a battle. The entire April, 1962 Brahms concert was preserved, thanks to a radio broadcast, and is now available on CD, including an interview with Glenn Gould.
