Notes & Reviews:

Leopold Stokoswki conducted this symphony more often than any other Tchaikovsky symphony and, like audiences all over the world, considered it the work of genius that it undoubtedly is. The reaction of the audience filling the huge Royal Albert Hall at the magnificent performance presented by the 91-year-old Stokowski and his young orchestra is ample evidence of the love for this noble symphony. The performance was exclusively recorded by Cameo Classics. The rehearsals were also recorded, and illustrate the brevity with which Stokowski was able to instruct the players of many nationalities in order to obtain a performance of such individuality.
