Leopold Stokowski was one of the very greatest conductors of the 20th-century. He died in 1977 at the age of 95, leaving a remarkable discography of wide range. His greatest quality was to obtain the finest orchestral balance and tonal colour from whichever orchestra he was conducting, and this unique collection – taken from German broadcast concerts given in Stuttgart and Frankfurt in 1955 – demonstrates Stokowski’s genius anew to later generations. The result is an amazing CD of superfine performances, captured in the best possible sound obtainable from such sources.
