Toscanini - Christmas Day & Farewell Concerts

Medium: 2 CD 
Release Date: 15.01.2011

This double album constitutes one of the most important issues of Toscanini’s recorded legacy in that it combines in these two CDs the first ever broadcast concert the Maestro gave with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, an orchestra founded expressly for him in 1937 in New York, and the last - his final appearance with the Orchestra in April 1954. A great deal of interest therefore attaches to these two events, combined for the first time as a commercially issued package - a true ‘hail and farewell‘ (Ave Atque Vale) to the art of the conductor whom many reagard as the greatest of all.
