Trivia:

A famous conductor of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra, he was an apparent Nazi sympathizer during WW II, and unlike other conductors of the period (such as Furtwangler) who were eventually exonerated, Mengelberg was stripped of all his powers and sent into exile in Switzerland for daring to kowtow to the Nazis.
