Music is a recurrent theme in many of Gennarelli’s sculptures. In addition to being a gifted sculptor, he was an accomplished violist who performed professionally with several New York orchestras. This moving tribute to the great conductor Toscanini is both stunning in its realism and powerful in its expression.
