In 1955 I was a 22-year-old teacher in training. I attended several concerts in the Festival Hall 1955-60. Which do I remember? Which one do I cherish most? Oct 57 Holst's The Planets LPO conducted by Boult.  Oct 58 Bizet and Franck Symphonies RPO conducted by Beecham. November 59 Beethoven's Choral Symphony Philharmonia Joan Sutherland and Jon Vickers conducted by Klemperer.  December 59 Haydn, Mozart, Liszt and Rossini RPO conducted by Beecham.  June 61 Stravinsky's Firebird and Orff's Carmina Burana conducted by Stokowski.   But the best? July 1956 Verdi's Requiem conducted by Guido Cantelli (his last in London) with Schwarzkopf / Tagliavini / Ebe Stignani. Wonderful.
