In a career spanning 54 years, Carlo Maria Giulini conducted many of the world’s great orchestras and made outstanding recordings.
After hearing Giulini’s radio broadcast of Debussy's 'La mer', the great conductor Toscanini asked to meet Giulini and the two men formed a deep bond. Toscanini recommended Giulini for the musical directorship at La Scala. He took up the post in 1953. Over a five year period, he conducted 13 productions but resigned after members of the audience jeered Maria Callas during a run of operas in 1956.
