Notes & Reviews:

It was Fritz Reiner who once said that Leopold Stokowski was "the man who invented high fidelity" and it is certainly true that of all the great 20th-century conductors, Stokowski stood alone in his fascination with recorded sound and his intense interest in the technical methods used to obtain the finest results. Two examples of his early stereo recordings appear here, both first releases from stereo tapes made by pioneering American recording engineer Bert Whyte.
