Claude Debussy – Iberia [Fritz Reiner, Chicago Symphony Orchestra]

Published on Jun 18, 2014

Legendary conductor Fritz Reiner established his legacy when he assumed his directorship of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Reiner raised the status of the CSO that of one of the finest in the world. Although not often associated with the works of the French Impressionist composers, these performances from 1958 are considered among the finest from the Reiner/CSO era! Recorded on March 4, April 13 and April 15, 1957 at Orchestra Hall, Chicago. Musicians: Chicago Symphony Orchestra Fritz Reiner, conductor

Wohl denen, die in deinem Hause wohnen,
die loben dich immerdar. Psalm 84:1,2,4

How lovely are thy tabernacles,
O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, yea, even faints

Blessed are they that dwell in thy house:
they will always be praising thee. Psalm 84:1,2,4
