Notes & Reviews:

As historical recordings go, this is certainly self-recommending! A true magician at the podium, Stokowski produced electrifying results in these performances, conducting Toscanini's amazing group of musicians. Too bad time constraints didn't allow Frances Nash and Stokowski to give a complete performance of the MacDowell, as this is a fine account. And fans of the composer/musicologist Deems Taylor will be happy that this performance of his "Ramuntcho"music (an "underground tape" favorite for many years) has been issued commercially in fine sound.
