Pierre Monteux discography

Monteux circa 1912

The conductor Pierre Monteux made a large number of recordings throughout his career. His first recording was as a violist in "Plus blanche que la blanche hermine" from Les Huguenots by Meyerbeer in 1903 for Pathé with the tenor Albert Vaguet.[1] His first recording as a conductor was the first of his five recordings of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.[2] His last studio recordings were with the London Symphony Orchestra in works by Ravel at Wembley Town Hall at the end of February 1964.[3] He recorded works by more than fifty composers.[4] However, he disliked recording, saying of studio sessions,

You may give an excellently played, genuinely felt performance of a movement, but because the engineer is not satisfied because there is some rustling at one point, so you do it again and this time something else goes wrong. By the time you get a "perfect" take of the recording the players are bored, the conductor is bored, and the performance is lifeless and boring. … I detest all my own records.[5]

In Monteux's lifetime it was rare for record companies to issue recordings of live concerts, although Monteux would much have preferred it, he said, "if one could record in one take in normal concert-hall conditions".[5] Some live performances of Monteux conducting the San Francisco Symphony and Boston Symphony orchestras survive alongside his studio recordings, and many have been issued on compact disc.

Many of Monteux recordings have remained in the catalogues for decades, notably his RCA Victor recordings with the Boston Symphony and Chicago Symphony orchestras; Decca recordings with the Vienna Philharmonic; and Decca and Philips recordings with the LSO.

Monteux's recordings include:[6]
