Another free download from BigEarsRecords. A 1961 Decca recording for Reader's Digest of Haydn's Symphony 100 in G major 'Military' with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Charles Gerhardt.
Chuck Gerhardt was a prolific recording artist from the 1960's to the 1990's, as both producer and conductor - sometimes both simultaneously. Numerous orchestral recordings, many with the specially created National Philharmonic were made with great panache and élan.
Despite the commercial success of his recordings, his popularity among musicians, and numerous invitations to conduct in concert Gerhardt consistently demurred.
