Notes and Editorial Reviews

This CD features two 1972 live recordings in sumptuous Phase 4 Stereo. Unusually, Stokowski's only recording of any of Elgar's music is performed by a non-British orchestra. The Brahms comes from an Anniversary Concert celebrating Stokowski's 60-year association with the LSO as well as his own 90th birthday.
