4.0 étoiles sur 5 Showcase for Stokowski and his bizarre repertoire 31 janvier 2010
Par dv_forever - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Leopold Stokowski was one of the most original conductors of the past century. Dedicated all his life to new music as well as neglected composers, his adventurous spirit put to shame many of the more traditional maestros of his era. He premiered some 800 new pieces of music! A staggering display of commitment to the music of his time. What conductor alive today can even begin to compare to his advocacy of non-traditional repertoire? Granted that Stokowski was more attracted to the flowery, perfumed exotic works than the meat and potatoes masterpieces that make up the catalogues of more conservative conductors. But I for one appreciate his willingness to go where others seldom ventured.

Here we have two discs in the Great Conductors series dedicated to him. We start off with Sibelius' Symphony 1, a popular work that I am not personally in love with. Stokowski makes great drama of it and it is sure to please. Sound quality is very fine stereo. Next up is the 2nd Symphony of Nielsen, a live performance from Danish radio. It has an ambience and a hot-blooded atmosphere that must have lit up the crowd that night. The sound is a tad strange, almost a half way house between stereo and mono. Sounds like it was made from a pirate tape by a concert goer. Still, such a ravenous account makes up for any lack of sound quality and it feels like you're in the hall reliving that evening. Percy Grainger's orchestral arrangements of some of his piano pieces make a nice fill up at the end of disc one.

Disc two is much more exotic as far as repertoire is concerned. A short piece by Dukas is followed by a highly combustible Brahms Tragic Overture. This is a piece I rarely listen to as I find it a chore to sit through. However, Stokowski's tempos are light speed faster than any other maestro and he makes it an event. Then we have a Hungarian Rhapsody by Liszt, string orchestra music by Turina, the colorfully orchestrated Escales ( Port of Call ) suite for orchestra by Ibert and then we come to the main event of disc 2, the love music from Wagner's Tristan and Isolde. As a big Wagner fan, I must admit I was primarily attracted to this Stokowski collection because it included this gorgeous item. Stokowski conducted a complete Wagner opera only once. That was Parsifal. Stokowski's specialty was to take excerpts from the operas and string them together in his own "synthesis" type arrangements. The Love Music comes from Act 2 of the opera and links it to the conclusion of Act 3, Isolde's transfiguration scene, which together combine for a 26 minute tone poem of sorts. Tristan and Isolde is the most romantic music ever composed. Sometimes of course I prefer to hear it without the voices and just luxuriate in it's decadent sensuality. This is the only selection on this two disc set that has Stokowski conducting his famous Philadelphia Orchestra.

The recording of Tristan and Isolde dates from 1960 and sounds good although there is still much hiss and some crackle which takes away from the music's dreamy night time atmosphere. Stokowski actually goes for a ripely passionate account instead of a more sensual or philosophical approach. If you want a modern digital version of this same synthesis, check out the Naxos CD with Stokowski's protege Jose Serebrier conducting. There the sound is clear and allows you to wallow in this music's utter gorgeousness. Stokowski is more explosive, Serebrier is more attuned to atmosphere.

The Russian Sailors' Dance from Reinhold Gliere's ballet The Red Poppy acts as a final encore to this wonderful collection of music. Stokowski was one of a kind. Sadly there is not a single conductor out there alive today that can weave magic like the old wizard, nor is there anyone that is as committed to music off the beaten path.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The great Stokowski--no, really 6 novembre 2005
Par Santa Fe Listener - Publié sur
Format: CD
With the reissue of hundreds of Stokowski recordings, we have tangible proof that he was a great conductor and not simply the great showman shaking hands onscreen with Mickey Mouse in Fantasia. Stokowski began recording in the 1920s and didn't stop for six decades--that must be a record. The compilers of this 2-CD sampling in the Great Condcutors of the Century series couldn't possibly represent that whole span. They have chosen stuido recordings and live performances from the latter part of Stokowski's career. The earliest selection is some Percy Grainger from 1950, the latest a Brahms Tragic Over. from 1977, when the conductor was 95 (he would die later that year). The reviewer below lists all the items, making up for Amazon's neglect.

Two major works are included, the Sibelius First Sym. from 1976, in a vigorous reading that sometimes turns rackety (the conductor was in his 95th year!)and the Nielsen Second Sym., from 1967, which may not really be major but is at least long. The rest is bits and pieces, yet everything shows Stokowski's hallmarks: excellent ensemble, alert rhythm, lots of rubato and expressive underlining (the compilers haven't picked pieces where his tics become outrageously indulgent, as in Stoki's soupy Tchaikovsky Fifth on Decca), and an unbuttoned love for music. Stokowski, like Bernstein after him, brought common people to love what he loved. It would be fair to say that both conductors were possessed by music, and they gained massive public exposure as a result. We are very fortunate they weren't charlatans--despite the derisive critics who pasted that label on Stokowski during his low point in the Fifties and early Sixties, when he was a fallen star.

The reason that this set emerges as one of the best installments in the series is that the compilers resisted the urge to show Stokowski at his most vulgar; they skipped all the dim shellac recordings from the 30s; they left out Stokowski's too familiar Bach transcriptions for orchestra; and except for the Brahms overture, they excluded the classical composers that he definitely didn't excel in--Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Mendelsohn, and Brahms. It's amazing to think that someone could tower over orchestral life as Stokowski did without being able to master so many essential composers (though there is a great Beethoven Ninth from the autumn of Stokowski's career). An exotic who specialized in exotics. Five stars, definitely.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Conductors of 20th Century= Best Reissues of the 21st 26 mars 2003
Par Michael Brad Richman - Publié sur
Format: CD
It's sad that the "Great Conductors of the 20th Century" reissue series has not gotten more notice on Amazon and in other places, because it has my vote for the best reissue program thus far of the 21st Century. Drawing from the archives of all the major classical labels (EMI, Sony, BMG, DG, Decca, Philips, Supraphon, etc.), EMI and IMG Artists have assembled a wonderful series of affordable two-disc sets by the leading conductors of the last century. And unlike its counterpart, "The Great Pianists of the 20th Century," which are basically compilations of material already available on other CDs, the "Great Conductors" features rare and, for the most part, previously unreleased performances!

This particular CD, Volume 23, features the great Leopold Stokowski, known to most as the conductor in Disney's "Fantasia." As the track information is not abundantly clear above, allow me to mention that these discs feature memorable stereo performances of Sibelius' Symphony No. 1, Nielsen's Symphony No. 2, Brahms' "Tragic Overture," Ibert's "Escales," Dukas' brief "La Peri - Fanfare," Turina's "La Oracion del Torero," and Stokowski's own arrangement of "Tristan und Isolde: Love Music." There are also classic mono recordings of three Grainger songs featuring the composer on piano, Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 1," and the "Russian Sailor's Dance" from Gliere's "The Red Poppy - Concert Suite." The performances are with a variety of orchestras including the National Philharmonic, Danish State Radio, NBC Symphony, National de la Radiodiffusion Francaise, and Stokowski's own orchestra. The earliest recordings on this set are the Grainger pieces (1950) and the latest are from the mid-70s (Sibelius 1976 and Brahms 1977). The sound for all is excellent.

Whether you are a serious collector of classical music or a beginner, the "Great Conductors of the 20th Century" has something for everyone. If the prized, rare performances previously unreleased on CD (or ever!) doesn't excite you, then use this as an opportunity to check out one of the greatest conductors ever recorded. Chances are, since stores are offering increasingly homogenized classical music sections, this conductor isn't even in your collection. And that would truly be a shame.
