Rouget de Lisle / Présentation : Monique Berger
La Marseillaise
Yehudi Menuhin
Orchestre de la Société des Concerts du Conservatoire

Direction : Charles Munch


CD 7: War and peace. Menuhin snatched the recently rediscovered Schumann concerto – which he described as the “missing link of the violin literature” – from under the Nazis’ noses.
Then, in October 1944, just two months after the Liberation of Paris, he re-opened the Paris Opéra with Charles Munch, playing the Marseillaise and an extract from the Mendelssohn concerto, a work that had been forbidden during the Occupation.
The entire radio broadcast of this emotion-laden concert is to be heard on this disc.
