The Other Toscanini

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

The Other Toscanini is the only book in English about the Argentine conductor and composer Hector Panizza (1875-1967). Known all over the world by his Italian name - Ettore - the maestro was in fact born in Buenos Aires and developed an astonishing international career, becoming music director of, successively, Covent Garden, la Scala (where he conducted alongside Arturo Toscanini), Teatro Colon, and the New York Metropolitan Opera. At the Met between 1934 and 1942, he was in charge of the Italian repertoire and started the first radio broadcasts, whose recordings are his most well-known. He conducted widely in Europe and the Americas and devoted part of his energies to composing, recording, and organizing musical institutions. Now virtually forgotten, Panizza's name is being revived in this definitive biography, which describes both his life and his legacy, strongly associated with that of the great Arturo Toscanini.

The book also describes Panizza's important accomplishments as a composer. In his native Argentina, he is known for the patriotic "Cancion de la Bandera," based on a text by Luigi Illica, Puccini's librettist. But Panizza also wrote operas, orchestral works, chamber music, and songs, widely performed in their day and still worthy of frequent revivals.
