A compelling performance of Bruckner's Symphony No. 8, this video presents Steinberg at his most majestic in a sympathetic interpretation of this mighty work. The Boston Symphony Orchestra is once again on top form, as testified by a rapturous Sanders Theatre audience.

The ICA Classics Legacy series represents an historic account of performances by some of the world's greatest artists. This series features some of the earliest televised concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and their Music Director, William Steinberg.

While the material has been restored using the greatest care and state-of-the-art techniques, certain visual artefacts and distortions remain in some instances due to the age of the film. Despite this, it remains of exceptional musical interest and historic value and is released here for the first time.
