When legendary record producer John Culshaw left Decca in 1967 to become Head of Music at BBC Television, he inaugurated and supervised several series of “Andre Previn’s Music Night.” Previn would talk informally direct to the camera and then turn and conduct the London Symphony Orchestra, whose members were dressed not in evening clothes but in casual sweaters or shirts. The program attracted unprecedented viewing figures for classical music in the early and mid 1970s in the U.K. Taking advantage of the television program’s success, EMI recorded Previn and the LSO at Kingsway Hall, London on December 15, 1974, and May 19 and 20, 1975, in a program of popular music typical of the series. These recordings were produced and engineered by Christopher Bishop and Christopher Parker respectively.
