 Arturo Toscanini
  Broadcast from Washington D.C. - Tuesday 14 May 1940 Constitution Hall, Washington D.C.  


This important historical release brings the only performance Toscanini ever gave of the Swedish composer Kurt Atterberg’s Sixth Symphony, which won the 1928 Columbia Schubert Centenary Prize. This is therefore a highly valuable recording, for the composer later described Toscanini’s account as the finest he had ever heard of any of his works. Also on the disc are four items from an important Washington DC concert given in 1940 prior to a South American Tour, including the delightful Batuque by the Brazilian composer Fernandez and Samuel Barber’s haunting Adagio for strings. A rare disc of Toscanini in mainly 20th-century music.
 

"Toscanini fans will need no urging from me to check this disc out; Atterberg aficionados will need it as well, though newcomers to his symphonies might best start elsewhere. Broadly speaking, however, if you enjoy historical recordings and want to hear a great conductor leading energized live recordings of timeless late-romantic repertoire, buy with confidence..."
