A bit about George Szell ...

Gyrgy Szll, best known by his Anglicised name George Szell (June 7, 1897 July 29, 1970) was a conductor and composer. He is remembered today for his long and successful tenure as music director of the Cleveland Orchestra from 1946 to 1970 and for the recordings of the standard classical repertory he made with Cleveland and other orchestras. It is said that Szell, among all conductors, had a baton with "one of the sharpest points" because his orchestras were distinguished by their precision.
