The winter of 1943 was a grave, scary time. War in the Pacific simmered. Berlin burned in what Edward R. Murrow called an “orchestrated hell,” and on December 2nd, German planes bombed allied ships carrying mustard gas at the port of Bari, Italy, releasing the toxic gas and killing civilians. In America on December 8th, resounding across the airwaves, Toscanini and NBC Symphony responded to grief and anxiety of the moment with solemn concert of heroic Italian music by Garibaldi and Verdi.
