Arturo Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra/Dukas/Smetana/Saint-Saëns. Toscanini Conducts The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, The Moldau and Danse Macabre. RCA Victor LM-1118, 1953(?). (on vinyl, from a thrift store)
I can’t fault it too much; it’s reasonably good recordings of pop culture staples. But the performances aren’t as engaging as I expect from Toscanini. (The fact that I don’t like the pieces probably doesn’t help; I don’t like late 19th-century music as a rule, and this stuff is as late 19th-century as it comes.) It’s a pretty boring album. But there’s a nice bang at the end of every piece to wake you up.
