Rimsky Korsakov Scheherazade, Stokowski, Philadelphia Orchestra, February 6, 1962 broadcast

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov


Philadelphia Orchestra, 
Leopold Stokowski, Conducit 

February 6, 1962 broadcast recording

Reel-to-reel tape* source

Radio announcer starts the party, applause and ending whoops included. The crucial second movement solo violin parts are given to us, I assume, by Anshel Brusilow. They are everything I wish for in this work. Also,  you may know that when you need a satisfying spectacle, a pint of Stoki is your only man. I have had a Scheherazade orgy this past 3 weeks, and so finally just decided to post a particularly fetching version. As always, this is not available commercially by any official sources.    

The contributor remarks, "*Many thanks to Jack (JackG) for his help in restoring the portion of the second movement missing from my tape."


Jeffrey Catherine Jones (1944-2011) for making the art in 1970. Obviously I stole it.

Ray, JackG and the other symphonyshare folks who worked on this, then put it up. Obviously I stole it.

Simply amazing !

The handling of momentum, the shifting of tempo, Stokowski owns this piece of music. And the solo violin is so beautiful.

It just came to my mind that his Decca recording, the overloading distortion least he tried.
