About

Leopold Stokowski was both one of the twentieth century’s greatest conductors and an inveterate orchestral arranger. This compendium features a colourful selection of his transcriptions, which received the highest praise when first released in a series played by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under the distinguished baton of José Serebrier, one-time associate conductor to Stokowski himself.
