Stokowski conducts The Art of Stokowski

Stokowski conducts

Elgar Enigma, Brahms 1 (Phase 4 Stereo)

Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra

Code: CACD0524


10.15 / 11.37






"The sound is of audiophile quality, the performances a combination of virtuosity and orchestral elegance of high order." Audiophile Audition

"You would never guess that this is a Czech Philharmonic premiere, so natural is the phrasing, so idiomatic is the Elgarian spirit. You will have to search hard for a nobler Nimrod or more lovable Dorabella." Classic CD

"If ever a disc proved that great conducting is about personal magnetism that transcends age and physical frailty, this is it." Gramophone

"Like most Stokowski performances, they radiate such strong personality that criticism is disarmed—or should be..." Classic FM Magazine

At the age of 90, Stokowski produced an astonishing account of the Enigma Variations with a non-English orchestra to whom the work was totally new, recording a unique version of Elgar's masterpiece.
