Biographical History

Arturo Toscanini (1867-1957) was an Italian conductor, renowned for his intensity and perfectionism. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century.

Dom Ludovic Baron, O.S.B. is a Benedictine monk and music scholar with expertise in monastic chant. He is featured on at least one album, "Gregorian Chant by Dom Ludovic Baron, O.S.B." released by the Smithsonian Institution on their Folkways label, which includes an interview and explanation of chants.

Robert Hupka (1919-2001) was a Viennese-born recording engineer and photographer. He was a sound engineer for RCA and later for Columbia records, and worked closely with Toscanini for many years. A talented photographer, he also took thousands of photographs of the conductor which were published in 1963 in his book This Was Toscanini. Hupka's connection to Baron's chant recordings is unknown.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Robert Hupka Collection of Toscanini Test Pressings and Dom Baron Chant Recordings consists of a small amount of papers and a very large number of recordings.

Papers contain clippings, price guides, Toscanini's copy of Aida with his signature, material from the 1937 Salzburg Festival, two notes in Toscanini's hand, and some miscellaneous printed material (programs, etc.)

Recordings are subdivided into Toscanini recordings and Baron recordings. The 3608 Toscanini recordings include test pressings of concerts, operas, festival performances, rehearsals, sacred music and more; for many of these, the location and date of the recording is given and in some cases additional information such as names of performers.

There are also 410 Miscellaneous recordings, which cannot be identified definitively as either Toscanini or Baron, or whose contents are entirely unknown.
