[100 photos] Substantial collection of vintage photographs of the Italian-American conductor, Arturo Toscanini. In a variety of formats, many of the photographs with press stamps and annotations to the verso explaining the circumstances of the images. Toscanini is shown on and off the podium, travelling to Capri in 1929, arriving in New York City; with friends, family and dignitaries, on tour at home, indefatigable and finally 'laying in state' in 1957. Some of the most moving photographs come from a sequence of smaller images showing the maestro rehearsing in old age, taken from behind the orchestra as the old man studies his score and exhorts his players to ever great efforts. Toscanini's long career brought him to a worldwide audience especially after the NBC Symphony Orchestra was created as a vehicle for his talents in 1937. This collection conveys some sense of the range and scope of a remarkable life.
