Carnegie Hall is fortunate to have a plethora of recorded history about the famous musicians who conducted on its main stage. Held in Carnegie Hall’s Rose Museum, 25 batons of these batons used to conduct world-renowned orchestras are now considered archival treasures. Follow the photos below, as Carnegie Hall Archivist Gino Francesconi and Bill McGlaughlin go behind the glass. Featured in the photos (in order) are the batons of Georg Solti, Herbert von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, and Arturo Toscanini.
