Notes & Reviews:

This stereo broadcast of a Royal Albert Hall concert given in May 1974 represents the last public appearance of Leopold Stokowski in England. The 1974 concert has been issued on BBC Radio Classics in 1995 (the whole series was deleted in 1997) and received excellent reviews - "electrifying", "highly compelling music making" - in the Penguin Guide of the time. BBC Legends have now gone back to the original master tapes and had a completely new master prepared by Paschal Byrne who is responsible for the superb reissues of Stokowski on Cala and some of the BBC Legends issues, notably Mahler's Symphony No.2.
