Notes & Reviews:

On 19th September 1952 Arturo Toscanini held his last La Scala concert, a performance entirely dedicated to Wagner's much loved orchestral music. The concert was one of the most memorable events of the Italian music life of those days, and was broadcast in its entirety live on the national radio. This double-CD set makes, for the first time, that recording available, including the radio announcements and the speaker's introductory comment (with English translation). A sound document of great interest, which all the admirers of Toscanini will want to possess.
