Stokowski conducts The Art of Stokowski

Stokowski conducts

Schumann 2, Haydn 53

His Symphony Orchestra

Code: CACD0532


£10.15 / €11.37






"...this is a glorious rendition that...is alive to the music’s volatility, fantasy and profundity." www.classicalsource.com

"...exciting, crisp and witty, full of elegance in the more relaxed passages." Classic Record Collector

"...this fascinating, and often surprising CD. It highlights a less familiar side to the old magician, and is sure to shake up quite a few preconceived notions." Classical London

This selection of Austro-German repertoire is from the period of Stokowski's guest conductorship of the New York Philharmonic, many of whose players formed the hand-picked orchestra that he used to expand his recorded output for RCA.
