Concert: Toulouse Orchestra at the NCH
Created in the early nineteenth century for the opera season of the Theatre du Capitole, it became the Toulouse Orchestra after 1945. The arrival of Michel Plasson as conductor in 1968 was a milestone for the orchestra as it rose to prominence during his tenure. Plasson’s flamboyant personality, his insistence on playing and recording the French repertoire, especially rarely played pieces, and his record deal with EMI, combined to make the orchestra the "reference" French orchestra, the most visible and most visibly French, with approximately one hundred records released.
