Notes & Reviews:

Guido Cantelli was 36 years old when he was killed in a plane crash in 1956. His death brought to an end one of the greatest conducting talents to have emerged in Europe since the end of World War II. Toscanini heard Cantelli conduct in 1948 and his praise carried considerable weight, resulting in an invitation to conduct the NBC Symphony Orchestra in 1949. His debut was little short of sensational and within a short time he was invited to conduct the New York Philharmonic. The collection of performances conducted by Cantelli on this commemorative CD is taken from a selection of those broadcast concerts by both orchestras.
