Special Limited Edition - Rare Archival Sources - now over 100 releases.

Each Toscanini Music CD-R (which plays on regular CD or DVD Players) features up to 79 minutes of elegantly hosted radio broadcasts from a golden era that bloomed over a half century ago. Enjoy the sound and ambience of a complete Arturo Toscanini concert from a lost era in radio broadcasting. Complete announcements introduce and bridge each section, there is even an occasional intermission segment. This is a direct analogue transfer process carefully done from the very limited edition of Arturo Toscanini Society recordings issued many decades ago. Each disc captures sound far more warm and rich than is frequently heard through filtered digital processing (which can remove as much musicality as surface noise). No attempt has been made to edit any content out of these discs of the broadcasts. So travel back with us to the earlier half of the last century and imagine what it must have been like to hear these broadcasts on your large floor standing AM tube radio from an easy chair in your living room. Each CD-R is not annotated. A Very limited supply. Caution: The sound on these discs is not represented to be up to modern fidelity standards and there is surface noise and very occasional radio static.

 Arturo Toscanini was the most important and greatest conductor in the history of music. Before the advent of radio a great conductor was deemed a success if his music was heard by thousands of listeners in a year. Just before the mid-20th century, the advent of concerts broadcast over the radio throughout the world changed the potential number of listeners to millions a year. In the history of music no conductor attracted more listeners on a regular basis than the radio and TV broadcasts conducted by Toscanini. Hearing and seeing the quality of his conducting bore witness to his genius. During the era of great conducting, he was the greatest and his NBC Symphony (1937-1954) the most virtuosic the world heard and will apparently ever hear. The popularity of classical music in Europe and the United States was in no small part the product of frequent radio broadcasts of "live" classical music concerts. When sound on film arrived, even Hollywood seized on classical music for original movie scores by great composers and included classical music in cartoons for children. During the 1930's, through radio and film, young people became familiar with classical music sounds even before they knew what it was! For adults, the proliferation of a positive image for classical music to the lower and middle classes happened! The high visibility of the frequent broadcasts of a genius like Toscanini, increased classical music listeners by millions. Classical music could be heard coming from AM radios in tenements, from auto radios (even the taxi or truck driver might be tuned to a Toscanini broadcast). It is estimated that by 1950 over 20% of records sales was classical and as many listeners said their preferred listening taste was classical. Cut to the early 21st century, classical music sales had fallen to about 2% and most cities no longer have a classical radio station. Enjoy this CD of music from a century when classical music filled the air and the finest conductor of this era of greatest listening was simply known as "Maestro".   Arturo Toscanini era il conduttore più importante e più grande nella storia di musica. Prima dell' avvenimento della radio un conduttore grande è stato ritenuto un successo se la sua musica fosse sentita dai migliaia degli ascoltatori durante un anno. Appena prima il secolo di mid-20th, l' avvenimento dei concerti ha trasmesso per radio sopra la radio durante il mondo ha cambiato il numero potenziale di ascoltatori a milioni un l' anno. Nella storia di musica nessun conduttore ha attratto più ascoltatori su una base normale che la radio e le radiodiffusioni di TV condotte da Toscanini. Sentendo e vedendo la qualità del suo testimone di condotta del foro al suo genius. Durante l' era di condotta grande, era il più grande ed il suo symphony di NBC (1937-1954) che il più virtuosic il mondo si è sentito ed apparentemente mai che si sentirà. La popolarità di musica classica Europa ed in Stati Uniti era in nessuna piccola parte che il prodotto di frequenti radiodiffusioni radiofoniche di " vive " concerti classici di musica. Quando il suono sulla pellicola è arrivato, persino Hollywood ha grippato su musica classica per i segni originali di movie dai compositori grandi ed ha incluso la musica classica in fumetti per i bambini. Durante il 1930.s, attraverso la radio e la pellicola, i giovani sono diventato esperti con i suoni classici di musica persino prima che conoscessero che cosa era! Per gli adulti, la proliferazione d'un' immagine positiva per musica classica ai codici categoria più bassi e centrali è accaduto! L' alta visibilità di frequenti radiodiffusioni d'un genius gradisce Toscanini, ascoltatori classici aumentati di musica da milioni. La musica classica potrebbe essere venire sentito dalle radio di in appartamenti, dalle radio automatiche (il driver del camion o persino del tassì potrebbe essere sintonizzato ad una radiodiffusione di Toscanini). È valutato che da 1950 20% eccessivi dei record le vendite erano classiche ed altretanti ascoltatori detti il loro gusto preferito ascoltare era classico. Tagliare al ventunesimo secolo in anticipo, le vendite classiche di musica erano caduto circa a 2% e la maggior parte delle città più non hanno una stazione radiofonica classica. Godere questo CD di musica da un secolo in cui la musica classica ha riempito l' aria ed il conduttore più fine di questa era di ascoltare più grande è stato conosciuto semplicemente come " Maestro ".

Please note the dates of these performances.... each CD-R contains performance that were never before issued... on any commercial CD. Many CD-R's present the complete hour long broadcasts with announcements (plus all have rare bonus fillers... you get up to 79 minutes of music
on each CD-R).
