Reviews:

"The new Cala CD is astonishing. Debussy sounds like a totally different composer when Stokowski conducts the music: not at all austere and etched, but present, passionate, sensually overwhelming. Quite astounding playing ... and the Ride of the Valkyries in primitive stereo is nothing less than mind-blowing." Simon Callow

"It’s impossible to believe these recordings were made over 50 years ago!" MusicWeb-International

"...while the glowing Finale instantiates Stokowski’s ability to transform every and any musical moment into an apotheosis of ravishing beauty." Audiophile Audition
