A new set of recordings, just out, celebrates the work of the great conductor Arturo Toscanini--with 84 CDs!  And as WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, even that may not be enough to understand Toscanini’s impact. Here is the next Fishko Files…


Arturo Toscanini: The Complete RCA Collection was released last week. The 84 CD set is available here.

Toscanini was a major presence on TV from its earliest days forward, and became a huge celebrity as a result. Here he is conducting the NBC Symphony Orchestra on this DVD, which is part of a large set of his televised conducting performances from 1948-1952.
