Far away from war-torn Europe, Buenos Aires had a rich musical life in the 1950s with such outstanding refugee conductors as Erich Kleiber and Fritz Busch leading operas and concerts at the Teatro Colon. For his guest appearances with the Colon Orchestra, Toscanini was able to use in the Verdi Requiem and Beethoven Ninth such outstanding singers as the distinguished Mozartian soprano Judith Hellwig, the alto Lydia Kindermann, once a star of the Berlin State Opera, the Belgian tenor René Maison, at the time an outstanding Wagnerian singer at the Met, and the great Russian basso Alexander Kipnis (in his only recorded Ninth). The recorded performance is, in the words of eminent Toscanini critic Christopher Dyment, who wrote the liner notes, "the most concentrated" among the maestros numerous performances on disc or tape, "terrifying in its intensity." In relatively good sound for its time, this newly discovered treasure should appeal to all music lovers, not just specialized Toscanini collectors
