About Guido Cantelli

With the death of Guido Cantelli, on the 24th of November, 1956, due to an air-crash at Paris-Orly airport, the musical world lost one of the most promising musicians of the period starting immediately after the end of the WWII, the conductor considered the artistic heir of Toscanini and De Sabata. He had been appointed just one week before (he was only 36 years old) permanent conductor of "La Scala" theatre in Milan.
