Stokowski Society Logo

Stokowski's 1950 RCA recordings, all with His Symphony Orchestra (selected as usual from the New York virtuosi with whom he often worked) of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite and the three Debussy Nocturnes, along with the two Enesco Rumanian Rhapsodies from 1953. Paschal Byme has done his usual fine engineering job and we also thank Mark Obert-Thorn for supplying his own sumptuous transfer of the Stravinsky work.

A special 'Bonus Track' features a previously unreleased 1941 Columbia recording in which Stokowski conducts the All-American Youth Orchestra.

Cala Records is proud to present these recordings remastered to CD standard.
