Releases Featuring Guido Cantelli

Guido Cantelli (27 April 1920 – 24 November 1956) was an Italian orchestral conductor.

The extraordinarily gifted Guido Cantelli (1920-56) was invited by Toscanini, who held him in the highest regard to be a guest conductor with the NBC orchestra in New York. From 1949 each year, Cantelli conducted the NBC, the New York Philharmonic and Boston Symphony orchestras. In 1950, he was at the Edinburgh Festival and in 1951 Lucerne, Salzburg and Venice Festivals. He started recording with the Philharmonia Orchestra for EMI. He was named Musical Director of La Scala, Milan in November 1956 but his promising career was cut short only one week later by his death at the age of 36 in an aircraft crash in Paris, France. Walter Legge, EMI's producer, wrote, 'no other conductor in the history of the art has established, so early in life, so wide a fame.'

Walter Legge, EMI's producer, wrote, 'no other conductor in the history of the art has established, so early in life, so wide a fame.' While studio recordings validate Legge's assertion, none quite captured the incandescence of his live performances. These important and very rare 'live' recordings featuring the Philharmonia Orchestra derive from the Music Preserved archive and have never been released before. The Glasgow Herald stated that...
