From The Archives - Bruno Walter

Conductors Bruno Walter, Arturo Toscanini, Erich Kleiber, Otto Klemperer and Wilhelm Furtwängler - Berlin 1929

Five of the world’s greatest conductors came together in Berlin, 1929. In the first of five shows paying tribute to these extraordinary musicians we profile Bruno Walter, far left in the photo. Walter was one of the most respected and beloved conductors of the 20th century. A master in both the opera house and the concert stage, we’ll hear music by Brahms, Mozart, and Wagner as only he could conduct it.
