Personal Quote:

People say I hate musicians. They are wrong. I only hate the bad ones.

Trivia:

Was scheduled to conduct a series of performance of Wagner's "Gotterdammarung" at the Metropolitan Opera during the 1963-1964 season but died of a second heart attack just as rehearsals were about to begin. The performances were ultimately led by Josef Rosenstock. See more »

Trademark:

Tiny, almost imperceptible conducting gestures rather than big, broad ones like most other conductors.

Star Sign:

Sagittarius
