Comments
An Austro-Bohemian late-Romantic composer and one of the leading conductors of his generation. While in his lifetime his status as a conductor was established beyond question his own music gained wide popularity only after periods of relative neglect which included a ban on its performance in much of Europe during the Nazi era. After 1945 his compositions were rediscovered by a new generation of listeners and he then became one of the most frequently performed and recorded of all composers, a position he has sustained into the 21st century.
