Chronological Discography of Stokowski Red Seal Victor Recordings

 

The discography of the Victor Red Seal recordings by Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra is excellently served by the massive and definitive work of John R. Bolig in his The Victor Red Seal Discography Volume 1: Single-Sided Series (1903-1925) and the The Victor Red Seal Discography Volume 2: Double-Sided Series to 1930 1. 

 

Both of these were published by the excellent discography source Mainspring Press of Denver (see the  Leopold Stokowski - Philadelphia Orchestra Bibliography, Sources and Credits  for full information.)  These sources fully document Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra recordings from 1917 - 1930.

 

Enno Riekena Stokowski Discography

Other definitive sources are the discographies of Enno Riekena and of John Hunt.  Covering the whole of Stokowski's career is the superb discography compiled and maintained by Enno Riekena, and the related work contained in John Hunt's pioneering Discography and Concert Register

 

John Hunt Leopold Stokowski Discography and Concert Register

 

The Riekena discography was built, in part according to Mr. Riekena, on the excellent Discography and Concert Register  compiled by John Hunt for the Leopold Stokowski Society2 .  This extensively researched reference was published first in 1996 by John Hunt in cooperation with the Leopold Stokowski Society.

 

Mr. Riekena's discography must be the best, most complete, and error-free discography of Stokowski's commercially released disks on the internet, by this famous Stokowski expert and scholar.  This carefully prepared and researched work, 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's discography may be found at:

http://members.lycos.co.uk/stokowski/  

 

(Note that Enno Riekena also publishes his own CDs of Stokowski broadcasts which you can see at his Leopold Stokowski Site  http://www.geocities.com/stokowskisite/ .  Theo van der Berg also had extensive Stokowski CDs from his private collection at his web site http://www.med.hro.nl/burtw/ )

 

And now, riches of riches, John Hunt and the Leopold Stokowski Society have published a new edition to the Stokowski discography.  It is extensively expanded and corrected, with recording dates and includes the known non-commercial Stokowski recordings in private collections.  Mr. Hunt states that it benefits from the scholarship of Theo van der Berg, and Enno Riekens, 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 )

 

 

Organization of the Chronological Discographies

 

For this web site dealing with the recordings of Leopold Stokowski with the Philadelphia Orchestra from 1917 to 1940, I have arranged the recordings into a chronological discography, dealing with each issued recording, year by year, for the most part based on the information contained in John Bolig's two volumes of Victor Red Seal Discography1.  (However, any errors are solely my own.) The relevant recording information, including matrix numbers, where known, are also indicated.

 

These chronological discographies are separated into an acoustic discography covering 1917 to 1924 and an discography of electrical process recordings covering 1925 to 1940.

 

Acoustic Recordings:  this covers all the acoustic recordings from 1917 to 1924 with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski and released by Victor.

Electrical Recordings:  this documents all the electrical recordings from 1925 to 1940 made by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski and issued by Victor.

Note on listening to the Stokowski recordings

 

The recordings in this site are files in mp3 format (128 mbps) encoded from my recordings.  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 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 part 1 is 14MB and Le Sacre 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.
