Stokowski conducts Liszt, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky

From December 1947 come several recordings made by Stokowski and a specially constituted recording ensemble. Liszt's Les Preludes is given the full Stokowski treatment, Sibelius's Swan of Tuonela glides voluptuously by, and a 50-minute selection from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty shows Stokowski and his Symphony Orchestra at their brilliant and most vivacious best.
