Notes and Editorial Reviews

Stokowski's 1954-55 LPs with the NBC Symphony Orchestra included the generous selection from Swan Lake heard here, hailed as a “truly fine reading” with “bright, warm, and well-engineered sound.”

"Passion and pageantry imbue every note from Stokowski's inscription of Swan Lake...Bright sound and warm orchestral tone saturate this splendid restoration." - Gary Lemco Audiophile Audition
