Personal Quote:

At Cleveland, we begin to rehearse where other orchestras leave off.


Was on his way back to Europe in 1939 when WWII broke out, leaving him marooned in New York City. Conducted at the Metropolitan Opera from 1942 to 1946, when he was offered the post of permanent conductor of The Cleveland Orchestra. See more »
