Arturo Toscanini: The Maestro, a life in pictures
The one hundred and fifty years since his birth and the sixty since his death offered the starting point for a reflection on the great conductor, who brought musical theatre to a new level of excellence, according to the new intentions of the twentieth century. Musical perfectionism, concentration on the show, absolute commitment to performance are all themes related to the figure of the artist and his organizer. After Toscanini, the very figure of the conductor has changed in the collective imagination. It has in fact become once and for all the ultimate responsible for the show and its artistic and musical choices.
