Verdi’s “A Masked Ball” was one of seven complete operas that Arturo Toscanini (at that time 87 years old) conducted with the NBC Symphony Orchestra. The recording is taken from two NBC broadcast concerts in January 1954 in Carnegie Hall, only a few months before Toscanini announced his retirement. Portions of the recording were taken from remakes in June 1954, also in Carnegie Hall, which proved to be the last recordings Toscanini ever made.
