This collection of Arturo Toscanini’s essential recordings marks the 150th anniversary of the conductor’s birth in 2017 as well as the 80th anniversary of the founding of the NBC Symphony Orchestra – the last organisation with which he had a long and fruitful relationship. It is also the 60th anniversary of Toscanini’s death. In most of his repertoire, Toscanini conducts the NBC Symphony and there are some outstanding examples of his work with the New York Philharmonic and the Philadelphia Orchestra. These earlier recordings are particularly significant because of the flexibility and detail of the interpretations.
