Arturo Toscanini was known for his ferocious temper and his irrepressible urge to achieve perfection in his music making. How well did he collaborate with other musicians in concertos? Apparently, some famous pianists thought highly of him as an accompanist.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear Toscanini performing with famous pianists, Arthur Rubinstein, Rudolf Serkin, and the Maestro's son-in-law, Vladimir Horowitz.
