Synopsis

Amazon.com
I'm not ordinarily a fan of "historical" recordings, which often means miserably recorded air checks of dubious provenance. These performances, however, are different, in that they sound very good given the live source material, and more importantly, they document Leopold Stokowski at his most insane. The end of the Fourth Symphony has to be heard to be believed--totally reorchestrated, no two bars in the same tempo--how the orchestra stays together is anyone's guess. If you're a Stokowski fan, you've got to hear this. --David Hurwitz
