I enjoyed Zander and the Boston Philharmonic for several years when I lived
in Boston. His performance of Stravinsky's  "Rites of Spring" was
breathtaking - and is now available on CD. His talks about the music of the
evening before the performance were especially interesting.

And now, back to packing for my week in Cuba - leaving tomorrow.
