Product Description:
The New American Orchestras Video(VHS/DVD) . Opening with Toscanini’s performance of the Forza del Destino overture, this program observes how destiny, as it were, drove many of the great European conductors to America, where they built extraordinary new orchestras in their own image: the NBC Symphony, the Philadelphia, the Boston. The program contains footage of Toscanini rehearsing the "Coro di Zingarelle" from Traviata (including one of his famous tantrums) and performing Respighi’s "Pines of Rome"; Stokowski in conversation and performing his transcription of Dido’s Lament from Dido and Aeneas and the Bach Toccata and Fugue in D minor, as well as Tchaikovsky’s Fifth; and Koussevitzky at Tanglewood conducting Beethoven’s Egmont Overture. (26 minutes, b&w/color)
