Sir Thomas Beecham spent much of the war in the U.S., and returned often. Sony's gathered some of his American recordings into this well-transferred Masterworks Heritage set. The two big works with the 1942 New Yorkers, the Mendelssohn Fourth and Sibelius Seventh, are OK, the Mendelssohn sprightly and bustling with wit, the Sibelius more matter-of-fact. But neither represents Beecham at his best; in fact, he sued Columbia to block their release and lost. They're still of interest and worth reissuing, but the real gems are the later recordings of lighter pieces with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the "Columbia Symphony," which Beecham, as always, made his own. The Carmen Suites have an irresistible swagger, Tchaikovsky's Capriccio Italien, enormous atmosphere, and the overtures, bounce and dash. Dan Davis
