In the earlier years of his career, Toscanini espoused the work of many young Italian composers. Giuseppe Martucci (1856-1909), whose music was strongly influenced by Wagner and other German musicians, was supported by Toscanini, who even performed his music in the 1940s in America, making recordings of his symphonies. Martucci introduced Tristan und Isolde to Italy at a performance in Bologna in 1888. Toscanini of course was a celebrated conductor of this work in Italy and in the Americas.

Toscanini gave many early, celebrated performances of Verdi’s last masterpiece Falstaff. The composer’s famous telegram of thanks to Toscanini (“Grazie, grazie, grazie”) was cherished by the conductor. It was sold in these rooms in London, 28 November 2012, lot 79a.
