Stokowski Society Logo

Stokowski's late 1950s stereo recordings of Beethoven's 7th Symphony and Paul Ben-Haim's From Israel Suite now make their CD debuts.

Stokowski the arranger is illustrated by his sumptuous transcriptions of music by Bach and Gluck.   The Mendelssohn Scherzo was recorded 'binaurally' in 1941, and this too makes its first stereophonic appearance on CD.

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