The World's Greatest Music
The great Italian conductor Claudio Abbado blazed a trail around the world – from La Scala Milan to the London Symphony Orchestra, from Chicago to Vienna and Berlin. He was known for his Germanic orchestral repertoire as well as his interest in Rossini and Verdi.
In 1958, Abbado won the international Serge Koussevitsky Competition for conductors at the Tanglewood Music Festival which resulted in a number of operatic conducting engagements in Italy. In 1963 he won the Dimitri Mitropoulos Prize for conductors, which enabled him to work for five months with the New York Philharmonic.
