Notes & Reviews:

One of the 20th century's great conductors, Leopold Stokowski was also a prolific transcriber of music for the symphony orchestra, creating a unique repertoire by bringing masterpieces to the concert hall that were often unfamiliar to audiences of the time. Jos Serebrier was Stokowski's associate conductor in New York, and drawing on memories of his special quality of orchestral sound has revived and revised the best of these sumptuous arrangements. These include a GRAMMY nominated Mussorgsky recording (Naxos 8.557645), and Stokowski's signature piece Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, immortalized as part of the soundtrack to Walt Disney's film Fantasia.
