Notes & Reviews:
Arturo Toscanini is considered by many to be the greatest conductor of modern times. He conducted 117 operas, not just by Italian composers such as Verdi, Puccini or Giordano, but also by Wagner, Mossorgsky and Debussy. He conducted 480 symphonies, including 48 premierès. This special super-audio compilation from Praga, released to commemorate the 150th anniversary of his birth, reflects on his distinctive blend of perfectionism and passion.
