Great Verdi Conductors

August 31, 2013

This is a Verdi centennial year, and our program will be devoted to great Verdi conductors. Unlike Wagner conductors, who tend to be at home on concert podium as well as orchestra pit, Verdi conductors spend much more time exclusively in the opera house. Arturo Toscanini is an obvious choice for "greatest," but many names occur as follow-ups, and not all of them are Italian!
