Early in his career, Stern was a particular champion of the lesser-known Haydn Violin Concerto , recording it for American Columbia in 1947 with himself conducting. For the New York Philharmonic broadcast two years later, he had no less than Leopold Stokowski at the podium. The final broadcast features Serge Koussevitkzy at the podium of the Hollywood Bowl, a year after he had ceded the Boston Symphony to Charles Munch, conducting the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto .

The shocking news of the German attack on the Soviet Union, Operation Barbarossa, had reached Leningrad at midday June 22 as loudspeakers throughout the city broadcast the voice of Commissar for Foreign Affairs . Molotov announcing the bare facts and proclaiming: ‘Our cause is just. The enemy will be crushed. Victory will be ours.’ Among the thousands of Leningraders hearing the news was a thirty-four-year-old composer whose music was among the most valuable cultural material Communist Russia exported to the outside world. While not exactly a household name, Dimitri Shostakovich was familiar to classical music lovers in such faraway places as New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. His distinctive, original, and emotionally communicative symphonic works marked Shostakovich as one of the premier talents of modern music.
