The Guild series of CD issues of recordings of Leopold Stokowski has done much to reveal the immense range and depth of the great conductor's work during his very long career. This new coupling of music by Sibelius - who often praised Stokowski's performances - presents some outstanding accounts in a timely issue marking the 150th anniversary of Sibelius's birth. Of wholly exceptional interest is the world premiere recording of the Violin Concerto with Jascha Heifetz. This remained unknown until after the deaths of soloist and conductor - our new transfer, from a private collection, is the very best this legendary account has received. With shorter orchestral pieces we have the Seventh Symphony, in its second-ever recording. An issue of outstanding artistic merit.
