about this item

A rare glimpse into the life of the conductor considered to be the greatest of all time.  Arturo Toscanini is one of the most acclaimed musicians of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, beginning his career as a cellist then becoming world- renowned as a conductor. Known for his intensity, perfectionism, ear for orchestral detail, and photographic memory (he could conduct 160 operas from memory), he was appointed music director of La Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra at different stages in his career.   Published on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Toscanini’s birthday (March 25, 1867), this book provides insight into the legendary conductor’s genius through never-before-seen photos focusing on key moments of his extraordinary private and public life. Toscanini is a celebrity beloved both in the United States and overseas, and this book is a celebration of his integrity, talent, and relentless pursuit of perfection.
