It is never any trouble for me to,
remember exactly the age of the
famous organization of which I have
the honor to be musical director. The
}enthusiastic citizens who founded ,the
Philadalphia Orchestra organized for
their first experimental concerts in
the spring of 1900. A few months be-
fore that date, in Budapest, I first
saw the light of day.
Special Fascination
There is a special fascination for
me in thinking of our careers as par-
allels - the Orchestra's and mine -
until the parallel lines eventually!
meet. Separated by some 3500 miles,
while the Orchestra was acquiring
audience and experience, I was learn-
ing to walk and talk, to read and_
to play the violin. I had never heard
of The Philadelphia Orchestra, pro-
bably never of Philadelphia, which
would have been a difficult word for
a little Hungarian boy to pronounce.
I was intent upon the career of aI
violin virtuoso. My lessons with the
great Jeno Hubay (for whom I was
named) filled my days with work and
with dreams. My fingers were numb
from the exercises of Kreutzer and
Cramer, the show-pieces of Vieux-
temps and Sarasate.
I had tasted the intoxicating wine
of being a Wunderkind, and my whole
ambition was to be a "Wunderman"
as well. Of course the orchestra had

Broadcasting was new then, and
I was engaged to conduct a number
of programs for the radio - humble
beginnings, perhaps, but the most
priceless of experience. Audiences and
critics approved my work, with the
result that I was engaged to conduct
some of the Stadium Concerts in New
York and the summer concerts at
Robin Hood Dell in Philadelphia.
In the following season my wan-
dering path and the more exalted
one of The Philadelphia Orchestra
crossed for the first time. I was asked
to substitute as guest-conductor for
the most eminent of conductors, Ar-
turo Toscanini, who fell ill.
The illness of another conductor
took me to the Minneapolis Orchestra
and after my first concert there I
became its permanent conductor.
