References for Stokowski Victor Red Seal Recordings

 

An excellent reference work for the Victor Red Seal recordings by Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra are the two volumes of John R. Bolig: The Victor Red Seal Discography Volume 1: Single-Sided Series (1903-1925) 1 and the The Victor Red Seal Discography Volume 2: Double-Sided Series to 1930 2 published by the excellent Mainspring Press of Denver. 

 

Also by John R. Bollig is the Victor Discography of Special Labels 1928-1941 5.  This is a meticulously researched volume of very high quality.

Bolig Victor

 

Of the same high quality is Richard A. Kaplan's The Philadelphia Orchestra: An Annotated Discography published by Bowman & Littlefield 5.  This volume documents all of the Philadelphia Orchestra recordings from 1917 until March, 1913.

These and other excellent discographies and books on historical recordings are published by the Mainspring Press of Denver, which you can visit at:

Enno Riekena Stokowski Discography

 

Other excellent sources about Stokowski recordings are the discographies of Enno Riekena and of John Hunt.  These cover the whole of Stokowski's career.  The superb discography compiled and maintained by Enno Riekena is comprehensive.  The Riekena discography was originally built in part, according to Mr. Riekena, based on the discography compiled by John Hunt and published by the Leopold Stokowski Society 3.  Mr. Riekena's discography must be the most complete, and error-free discography of Leopold Stokowski's commercially released disks on the internet, by this Stokowski expert and scholar.  It is carefully prepared and researched, includes correct names of the works recorded --- which may often vary from the title selected by Stokowski or by Victor for the record label, particularly for earlier 78 RPM recordings.  Mr. Riekena has continued to update and maintain his Stokowski discography which found at:

John Hunt Leopold Stokowski Discography and Concert Register

 

John Hunt's Stokowski Discography and Concert Register was first published in 1996 by John Hunt in cooperation with the Leopold Stokowski Society.  John Hunt and the Leopold Stokowski Society published a new edition to the Stokowski discography in 2006. 

 

Hunt

Mr. Hunt states that it benefits from the scholarship of Theo van der Berg, and Enno Riekena, with added assistance from Michael Gray, Bill Holland, Robert M. Stumpf, II, Malcolm Walker and Dennis Davis.  This book, published by John Hunt is available at some book stores, as well as directly from John Hunt www.johnhunt.malcolmfox.com)

Note on listening to the Stokowski recordings

 

The recordings in this site are files in mp3 format (128 mbps) encoded from my collection.  Links to the mp3 files are located in two places:

 

First - in the page covering the year of the recording.  For example, links to a 1926 recording are found in the page:   1926 - Stokowski - Philadelphia Orchestra Recordings

 

Second - in the Chronological Discography page.  For example, links to a 1926 recording are also found in the electrical recordings chronological discography page:  Chronological Discography of Electrical Recordings   This page lists all the electrical recordings from 1925 to 1940 made by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski and issued by Victor, including of course the 1926 recordings.

 

The mp3 files in this site are (usually) encoded at 128 mbps.  This means that the files are of different sizes, according to the length of the music.  For example, the second electrical recording, the April 29, 1925 Borodin ‘Polovetzki Dances’ is small (3.6MB).  In contrast, the 1929 Le Sacre du Printemps file is large.  Le Sacre du Printemps part 1 is 14MB and Le Sacre du Printemps part 2 is 16MB.

 

This means that a large file will take a longer time to download, depending on your internet connection speed.  Please keep this in mind when you click to listen to - download a particularly music file.  You may click the link to the music file, but need to wait a number of seconds or even minutes to listen to the file.
