Stokowski conducts The Art of Stokowski

Stokowski conducts

The Planets, Afternoon of a Faun

NBC Symphony Orchestra

Code: CACD0526


$14.99 / CAD18.59






"An instructive, hugely enterprising collection, and essential listening for all fans of this great conductor." Gramophone

"...there’s a freshness to this early performance...audible both in its overall enthusiasm...and in its provocative details..." Fanfare

"...the magnetism of the performance is never in doubt." Penguin Record Guide

"...Stokowski’s broadcast performance evinces a giant theatricality and abundant zeal that proves just as hypnotically compelling." Gramophone

Holst's most famous work has long been regarded as an orchestral showpiece, and Stokowski naturally makes the most of it, along with two Debussy favourites and the rare Morton Gould marches.
