This week, The Music Treasury will be spotlighting none other than Arturo Toscanini, that most exceptional of conductors in the first half of the 20th Century! Toscanini began his career as a cellist, but turned to conducting when he was a young adult. Initially a conductor of opera, including the La Scala and the New York Metropolitan opera houses, he also conducted symphonic literature, and performed all-American concerts in the states during the second world war. Music from these concerts will be featured on Sunday, with works by Gershwin and others.
The show can be heard on Sunday, 16 July 2017, between 19:00 and 21:00, PDT. Gary Lemco is the show’s host, it is presented as a radio show with streaming broadcast: kzsulive.stanford.edu.
On both Saturday and Sunday, Edmund Stone will feature his observations on some parts of the vast repertoire of film scores in his show, The Score. It too is broadcast as a streamed radio show, from its host station in Portland: AllClassical.org. The show can be heard between 14:00 and 15:00 PDT. On Sunday, there will be an encore presentation of the previous week’s show of “Team Portraits”, including scores from The Magnificent Seven, The Avengers, Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, and more.
