Carlo Maria Giulini
Carlo Maria Giulini, described as “tall, handsome, suave, and intensely musical,” was born in northern Italy in 1914. Universally admired by both audiences and musicians, his conducting was a combination of Italianate fire and German gravitas. His genial disposition made him an ideal collaborator in concerto recordings. Among his most frequent soloists in the recording studio were Claudio Arrau and Itzhak Perlman.
On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear some of Giulini’s finest concerto recordings.
