We end up our meeting presenting two DVD which will enable to listen and see Arturo Toscanini conducting his american orchestra, the NBC Symphony, in two interesting fragments of compositions of Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner. Verdi will be represented by the “Hymn of the Nations”, a cantata written in the years 1861-1862 on a text by Arrigo Boito; and Wagner by the fragment “Siegfried’s Death and Funeral March” taken from the Götterdämmerung. The written text underlines the role of Maestro Toscanini in introducing Wagner’s music in our country, and in showing the art of Verdi with a critical and intellectual approach which was missing in the generic “routine” of the nineteenth century.
