He worked with Alfano on the completion of Turandot
    He and his NBC Orchestra were certainy looked forward to by the population as a whole for their frequent broadcasts and later for their television programmes. So I think that we can say he was a huge influence across the board.
    Fools talk because they have to say something, wise men talk because they have something to say.

    Wilhelm Furtwangler.
    His performing career was cut short by the Second World War but most of his performances, particularly his reading of Beethoven's and Schubert's Ninth can be termed as definitive.

    This question can only be answered separately for US and Europe. The musical life of the American and the European continent revolved around very different personalities, moreso than it does today.
