Grau was followed by two other greats: Heinrich Conried 1903 - 1908 and the superbly organized and innovative Giulio Gatti-Casazza for 25 years from 1908 - 1935.
It was said of Gatti-Casazza that he spoke no English - perhaps an exaggeration, and perhaps also a convenient role for him.
Nevertheless, many of the leading conducting names worked at the MET during Bing's regime, including George Szell, Fritz Reiner, Dimitri Mitropoulos, and even Herbert von Karajan.
- principal conductor of the German repertory Anton Seidl (1850-1898) was a Hungarian operatic conductor, born in Budapest May 7, 1850.
One of the most famous MET General Managers was Rudolf Bing (later in 1971, Sir Rudolf) who reined (not an exaggeration) from 1950 to 1972.
During this period, Bing was frequently accused of avoiding giving authority to any eminent conductor, and fearing the competition of a Music Director.
As a consequence, the Philharmonic Society of New York experienced new financial prosperity.An important opportunity for Seidl resulted from Wagner's recommendation of Seidl as conductor of the Leipzig Stadt-Theater.Seidl conducted in Leipzig from 1878-1882, to be succeeded by his Hungarian contemporary, the young Artur Nikisch (1855-1922).In 1897, Anton Seidl conducted in London at Covent Garden.
Also in 1897, Anton Seidl organized a symphony orchestra, the Seidl Orchestra so named, that many thought would become a permanent New York feature, given the financial backing of the many Seidl admirers.Then, in 1882, Seidl toured with the Angelo Neumann Nibelungen Ring Company.
