The famous Italian conductor Arturo Toscanini was noted for the intensity of his performances, as well as his rages at rehearsals when his orchestra could not reach the level of "The Maestro's" concept of perfection.  At the core of his repertory were the symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven, a composer whose dramatic style matched Toscanini's temperament. On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear some of Beethoven's "allegro con brio."
