About

This absolutely unique CD is a major contribution to the vast and wide-ranging discography of the late Leopold Stokowski (1882-1977) in that it shows him in the rare guise of an operatic conductor.

This recording comes from a complete concert he gave in Philadelphia in 1962, of major operatic excerpts sung by two of the greatest singers of the day - the magnificent Wagnerian soprano Birgit Nilsson and the wonderful American tenor George London.

Recorded in stereo, with the original announcements as broadcast, this exceptional disc is sure to gain the widest possible interest.
