the 1950's

from Southbank Centre Archive:

Irmgard Seefried and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf singing (mainly) German Lieder - usually with Gerald Moore. Lisa Della Casa singing, in particular, Brahms' "Immer leiser wird mein Schlummer". Hans Rosbaud conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra magisterially in a completely modern concert - Schoenberg, Webern, Berg, Blacher etc. - in such a way that it sounded like music. Clifford Curzon playing Mozart's 24th Piano Concerto with Harry Blech and the London Mozart Players in several successive years.
