Jascha Horenstein, conductor London Symphony Orchestra Royal Philharmonic Orchestra BBC Symphony Orchestra. This set contains the following albums: Producer's Note. Released with kind permission of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. RATHAUS Symphony No. 3, Op. 50 (1942-43) London Symphony Orchestra BBC Farringdon Studios, London, 13 March 1956. Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Horenstein, almost exact contemporaries, were both raised and educated in Vienna before and during the First World War. In April 1916 Korngold’s one-act tragic opera "Violanta" received its local premiere at the Hofoperntheater conducted by Leopold Reichwein.

Jascha Horenstein (Russian: Яша Горенштейн; 6 May 1898 – 2 April 1973) was an American conductor. Horenstein was born in Kiev, Russian Empire (now Ukraine), into a well-to-do Jewish family; his mother (Marie Ettinger) came from an Austrian rabbinical family and his father (Abraham Horenstein) was Russian.

On this Wagner disc I'm especially pleased with the Tannhauser Overture, since the version here is the complete overture version that I came to love as a teenager.
