The campaign to give Haitink to the world has hit new heights with another free download offer from Netherlands Radio. The very young Haitink cut his conducting teeth on its philharmonic orchestra in the late 1950s. Some of those broadcasts can be accessed here.

Repertory includes Grieg, Pijper, Brahms Bartok and Fauré. My thanks for the information to Rolf den Otter, who says it’s easy to download the concerts if you have the right software (and a few words of Dutch).

    Norman, which software would you suggest for the download? Patrick
    NL: I wish I could advise, but I can’t. I need to see a consultant.
