cover Arturo Toscanini: The NBC Years by Mortimer H. Frank
Book Description
Mortimer Frank's Arturo Toscanini: The NBC Years details Toscanini's magnificent and heroic 17 years (1937-1954) conducting the NBC Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra was created for him when he was 70, and he stayed at its helm into his 87th year.

The archival broadcast recordings documented and reassessed in this lively account comprise the most complete recorded legacy of Toscanini's orchestral conducting career. But they are also something more, for they provide ample evidence that Toscanini's work before an audience was often more compelling than his efforts in the recording studio. They are also more complete, because the broadcast recordings include his readings of many scores for which he left no approved recording, and his NBC career included performances of works he never conducted before coming to the network. In all, Mortimer Frank's sympathetic yet honest work adds much to what is known about Toscanini's years at NBC and in so doing corrects misconceptions about the period and the man.

The concerts and the broadcasts were immensely popular. For Toscanini's first appearance with the NBC Symphony, the network received 50,000 requests for 1400 available seats. Getting a seat was never easy, but millions of listeners could tune in by radio, and for generations Toscanini's name became synonymous with conducting. His legendary art and fiery personality also engendered controversy that has yet to subside, but this account takes on the challengers, accepting neither hero worship nor criticism that ignores the evidence.

For Toscanini's fans, partisans, and critics alike, Toscanini: The NBC Years is a magnificent resource, with season-by-season analysis, repertoire lists, videography, and discography, including non-NBC recordings and unreleased recordings, and rare photos of Toscanini during his NBC years. The volume is a resounding testimony to Toscanini's art and spirit.

cover Bruno Walter: A World Elsewhere by Erik S. Ryding, Rebecca Pechefsky
Book Description
Bruno Walter, one of the greatest conductors in the twentieth century, lived a fascinating life in difficult times. This engrossing book is the first full-length biography of Walter to appear in English.

Erik Ryding and Rebecca Pechefsky describe Walter's early years in Germany, where his successes in provincial theaters led to positions at the Berlin State Opera and the Vienna State Opera. They then tell of his decade-long term as Bavarian music director and his romantic involvement with the soprano Delia Reinhardt; his other positions in the musical community until he was ousted from Germany when the Nazi Party came to power in 1933; and his return to Vienna, where he was artistic director of the Opera House until he was again forced out by the Nazis. Finally they trace his career in the United States, where he led the New York Philharmonic and other orchestras and in his last years made numerous recordings with the Columbia Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble created especially for him. Ryding and Pechefsky are the first biographers to make extensive use of the thousands of unpublished letters in the Bruno Walter Papers, now in the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. In addition to interviewing more than sixty people who knew Walter, they examined countless reviews to assess the popular and critical impact he had on his times. Authoritative and even-handed, this biography sheds new light on Walter, one of the great formative influences in musical interpretation.
