Stokowski conducts The Art of Stokowski

Stokowski conducts

The 1947-9 Columbia Recordings, Volume 1

New York Philharmonic

Code: CACD0533


£10.15 / €11.37






"Here without question was one of the world’s great ensembles, driven to the height of its powers by a conductor with total command." Classic Record Collector

This eclectic program comes from the period of Stokowski's highly successful Guest Conductorship of the New York Philharmonic, then engaged in trying to improve its performance standards to rival the orchestras of Boston and Philadelphia—a process to which Stokowski greatly contributed.
