Giulini was a regular guest conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra for many years from 1955. Walter Legge, the orchestra's founder, and Karajan, then its principal conductor, had heard him in Milan and engaged him to record Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Bizet's Jeux d'Enfants. In 1959 Giulini recorded two Mozart operas, Figaro and Don Giovanni, with the orchestra, the former being preceded by more than 100 hours of rehearsal. Carlo Maria Giulini's Philharmonia recordings for EMI are legendary: as well as the Mozart operas, he recorded the Verdi Requiem and Four Sacred Pieces as well as orchestral recordings including Dvorak's 9th Symphony and Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, Brahms's 4th Symphony and, as presented here, the much admired 1962 Debussy's La mer and Nocturnes, an album that has become highly collectable for its sensitive interpretation and atmospheric sound.
