An interesting addition: if I am not mistaken, Toscanini has also included the Internationale in this concert, which was later cut when aired or released.

Part1 (Hymn of the Nations):

It's funny to see him conducting this music.

Hi Zauber. I know the videos... yes, funny :)

Anyway, The entire program of the 1944 concert is included.

Is this Goodmanmusica from YouTube, or another person with a lot of Toscanini recordings? I from YouTube, and my handle is SteveAndrewLangford. All of my recordings are RCA-issued (as I imagine you would recognize). Let me know for more info.
