Cheers to the Red, White, and Blue
“The Star-Spangled Banner” turns 200 this September and the Philharmonic is celebrating  with performances of a new edition of an arrangement by former Music Director Arturo Toscanini. Hear it in concerts July 4–6 during the Summertime Classics: “Star-Spangled Celebration” and at Central Park on July 14, during the free New York Philharmonic Concerts in the Parks.
But first, some backstory: In the years leading up to World War II, Toscanini was active as an anti-fascist. After relocating to the U.S., he was noted for championing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” facing the audience to lead singing of the first verse, and insisting that musicians stand while playing the national anthem, even during rehearsals. He created an orchestration for an international broadcast in 1943, also completing a manuscript that was auctioned for war bond purchases. In 1951 he revised the arrangement and donated the new autograph score for a Philharmonic fundraising auction; a Board Member bought the manuscript and donated it back to the Orchestra. It remained in the Orchestra’s Archives until University of Michigan musicologist Mark Clague and Philharmonic Archivist/Historian Barbara Haws met last year, and decided to collaborate on the new edition.
That new edition will be made available to educators across the nation at no charge at starspangledmusic.org.
