Stokowski conducts The Art of Stokowski

Stokowski conducts

Beethoven 6, Three Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies

NBC Symphony Orchestra

Code: CACD0545


10.15 / 11.37






"This is a Beethoven performance that wears its Romanticism on its sleeve... The important thing is that Stokowski shapes the music so lovingly." Fanfare

"There is something very special about this maverick conductor/arranger who captures the heart of so many music-lovers and continues to be feted by an increasingly large body of enthusiasts..." Classical CD Reviews

"What is not up for discussion is the dedication of the NBC musicians, each of them seem to lavish all the affection they can muster on the various lines." www.classicalsource.com

Stokowski, not primarily thought of as a Beethoven conductor, nevertheless garnered critical praise for several of his recordings and live performances of the symphonies. This recording of the Pastoral is from 1954.
