This historic recording from 1939 has been cleaned to the hall acoustics and is heard in stereo sound for the first time. Arturo Toscanini's first American recordings of the Beethoven symphonies are significant for a number of reasons: they represent the Italian Maestro at the height of his career, and capture the moment in history when his rise in American culture was meteoric. These are the recordings that made his Beethoven the stuff of musical legend. Only two years had passed since the NBC Symphony had been organized as his own orchestra; a distinction rarely afforded to any conductor. On the radio he had become a superstar. This is the chance to hear his interpretations at the point when he was a mature, but still energetic, performer. The present recording is of very good quality...
This classic live recording from 1952 was remixed in February, 2016. Although very popular in its early years, recordings of The Organ Symphony were nearly impossible to find. The symphony, scored for a large orchestra, two pianos, and pipe organ was written for human ears, not microphones. The present recording represents one of the earliest attempts to capture it. Although not completely successful in picking up the organ in detail, it is a remarkable effort, especially when considered as a live broadcast at the infancy of high fidelity sound. Toscanini's interpretation is very solid and well worth hearing. The first fully successful effort to record this symphony would come four years later, when Charles Munch and the BTO dazzled collectors with the Red Seal "Hi Fi Spectacular", (The mo...

Arturo Toscanini made US tour late 1920 till March next year with newly assembled la Scala Orchestra for financing Scala theater, and decided reluctantly tor record several sides acoustically (no other chance then) for Victor. Some of the recordings are astonishingly successful for that period with clear woodwinds and ambient sound level. I will be posting sound clip of the entire discs Toscanini made during this tour, acoustically reproduced on Victrola Credenza, as electrically there is an excellent transfer from BMG Victor.

Dino Borgioli (1891-1960) was an Italian lyric tenor who enjoyed an international career during the period between the two world wars. Born in Florence, he discovered his voice at an early age but initially had no intention of becoming a singer. Borgioli’s parents decided that he should pursue a career as a lawyer. Honoring their wishes, the young man dutifully enrolled in law school. However, Borgioli had always garnered a great deal of attention for his singing and decided to abandon the courtroom for a career on the opera stage. He left school and, quite literally, ran away from home to pursue vocal studies with celebrated teacher Eugenio Giacchetti. Giacchetti, who managed to reconcile his pupil with his worried parents, took charge of the young man’s training and guided him towa...
