Stokowski conducts
SIBELIUS: Symphony No. 1 & Symphony No. 2

The 25th in Cala's STOKOWSKI SERIES is devoted to a single composer.   Stokowski championed Sibelius' music on record and in the concert hall throughout his sixty-year conducting career and his thrilling 1950s recordings of these two symphonies make a welcome return to the catalogue.
