Very hard to ever topOctober 28, 2012By Gary D. (Boston, MA)See All My Reviews"Toscanini Conducting his own orchestra, the old NBC Symphony, in Carnegie Hall, perhaps the greatest composition ever written is certainly worth having in anyone's collection. Consider how many times Toscanini lent his considerable expertise to this piece over his very long career. And then consider who has joined in this recording, some of the finest voices of the world of that era and you have a genuine masterpiece. Yes their are other recordings by top notch Conductors, who became equally famous and we shall no doubt see more. But none will ever really equal Toscanini. This was recorded in 1952, and must be considered one of the great recordings of the 20th. Century."Report Abuse
