Notes and Editorial Reviews

These newly re-mastered early 1950s recordings present celebrated ballet highlights, performed in Stokowski's inimitable and colourful style, and played by an orchestra of top-flight New York musicians.

"Play through this superb collection and you can't help but believe that Stokowski was the heart of the ballet... and you'll never hear such vibrant, wide-ranging sound."
