Titanic Records, in conjunction with Oxford Records, is proud to
announce the release of "Julius Baker: Live Radio Broadcasts with
Juliette Arnold, pianist." It is likely that you already own a recording
of a performance by Julius Baker, but the material on this recording
is commercially available for the first time. In addition to his
many solo LPs, Baker played principal flute on the famed Columbia
Broadcasting Symphony (CBS) Orchestra recordings conducted by Bruno
Walter and on the New York Philharmonic discs of 1965-83, under
the baton of Leonard Bernstein.
Baker is widely considered to be one of the greatest flutists of
the last century and is responsible for bringing a new level of
excellence and artistry to the role of an orchestral flutist. This
disk consists of rarely heard works for flute and piano and flute
and orchestra. Mr. Baker's unique sound and flawless technique combined
with the effortless and insightful accompaniment of Juliette Arnold
make this compilation of rare recordings a fine addition to any
classical music lovers collection. You may now purchase this title
