"The result is spectacular, as Cala’s superb CD transfer demonstrates. The sound is so full, vivid and immediate, with an impressive spread...that it is hard to believe it is in mono merely." The Guardian

"...the performance is electric, particularly in terms of conducting, playing and choral singing. Stokowski propels the music on with a vivid intensity that wonderfully captures the pulse and atmosphere of each scene." www.classicalsource.com

"Rossi-Lemeni is a superb bass, the San Francisco Chorus and orchestra are excellent—and throughout we have the drama and sonorities always associated with the conductor." www.classicalcdreview.com

Stokowski's 1929 concert presentations of Boris Godunov were hailed by one critic as "the most monumental achievement in the history of the Philadelphia Orchestra." 23 years later he repeated the magic on this recording, with the bass Nicola Rossi-Lemeni fresh from his triumphant debut in the title role.
