Notes & Reviews:

This wonderful collection of symphonies comes from live recordings made in 1942 through 1944 and 1957. These are first performances conducted by Stokowski and show the richness and diversity of symphonic through during the quarter century that encompassed the writing of the compositions.

"As noted above, all four performances come from live concerts, and are followed by warm audience applause, but it's only in the Serebrier that there is much in the way of audible audience noise. There are highly informative booklet notes from our own Robert Matthew-Walker; altogether the disc must surely be a mandatory purchase for Stokowski enthusiasts." - Calum MacDonald, American Record Review
