CANTELLI in New York, Vol. 1

Guido Cantelli's short career blossomed in the US in the early 1950s, where he was widely seen as the natural heir to Toscanini, not least by the maestro himself. Conducting the New York Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra in 1955 at Carnegie Hall, with pianists Walter Gieseking and Rudolf Firkušný, these two concerts, a week apart, find Cantelli and his musicians in excellent form. Newly XR remastered from original CBS broadcast recordings in superb sound quality, together they're a tremendous example of a great lost talent. Irresistible.
