Thanks to unprecedented access to the conductor's archives, Harvey Sachs has written a completely new biography that positions Toscanini's epic musical career and sometimes scandalous life against the roiling currents of history. Set in his native Italy, across Europe and the Americas, and in 1930s Palestine, Toscanini soars in its exploration of genius, music, and moral courage, taking its place among the greatest music biographies of our time.

Toscanini by Harvey Sachs, a profound music lesson
From Verdi to Puccini, most of the great singers and most of the great musicians composers and conductors of the 20th century, Toscanini knew them all. And most of them considered him the greatest conductor of the 20th century. This book clearly verifies that and also shows that he was one of the great humanitarians of the 20th century. the book is beautifully written and beautifully recorded. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to learn more about opera, classical music and how to be a great human being.
