There have been many studies of Toscanini, the man. This book turns to the central questions of Toscanini as a musician and special character of the Toscanini performance. Writing lucidly and knowledgeably, the distinguished music critic of the Chicago Sun-Times defines those powers of mind and musicianship which set Toscanini apart from other conductors of our time and which, for millions of listeners, gave his interpretations the quality of revelation. Mr Marsh surveys the recordings that preserve Toscanini's achievement, with critiques of their significance, along with a chronological list of those still available. A brief sketch of his life rounds out this comprehensive picture of the Maestro who is idolized, quarrelled over, but generally acknowledged to be one of the most illustrious and widely influential conductors in history. -- Publisher description.

Wilhelm Furtwler left not only some of the greatest interpretations of operatic and symphonic music on record, but also expressed his views on musical issues of the moment in a number of outspoken essays and talks. His writings range from practical matters of performance and interpretation to aesthetic reflections on what he saw as the alarming direction in which music was developing in the wake of Schoenberg and the twelve-tone system of composition. Professor Ronald Taylor has here, for the first time, translated and annotated a selection of Furtwler's writings covering the four decades from the First World War to the conductor's death in 1954, and prefaced them with an essay on Furtwler's controversial career and complicated personality. The result is a collection of stimulating pieces with a claim on our attention, made all the greater for reflecting the musical and philosophical ideals of one of the great conductors of the twentieth century.
