Leopold Stokowski Chronological Discography

 

 

This is a chronological listing of the commercially issued recordings of the great Leopold Stokowski

 

Organization of the Chronological Discographies

 

This www.stokowski.org web site contains three chronological discographies of the recordings of Leopold Stokowski covering 1917-1977.  The listing is organized year by year to demonstrate the progression of the recording career of Leopold Stokowski.  (Note that a chronological listing of the concerts of Leopold Stokowski is also available by clicking the link below:

A Chronological Listing of the Concerts of Leopold Stokowski )

 

Each of these discographies is organized chronologically by year.  However, if you wish to reference the Stokowski recordings by composer's name or by the name of the composition, this can be easily done within each discography by using the search function of your web browser (for example, Ctrl+F in Google Chrome, Ctrl+F in Internet Explorer, Ctrl+F in Opera.)

 

The chronological discographies are organized in three different pages of this site:

 

1. 1917-1924 Chronological discography of the acoustic recordings of Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra

2. 1925-1940 Chronological discography of the electrical recordings of Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra

3. 1941-1959 Chronological discography of Stokowski's recordings 1941-1959

4. 1960-1977 Chronological discography of Stokowski's recordings 1960-1977

 

The recording dates, orchestras, soloists and other relevant recording information, including matrix numbers, where known, are are included in the discographies.  I have also tried to include some of the reissue numbers of recordings made 1941-1975

 

Chronological Discography of Stokowski's Acoustic Recordings 1917-1924

 

This discography lists all the acoustic recordings from 1917 to 1924 with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski which were released by the Victor Talking Machine Company.  In addition, where known, the dates and information on recordings made during this acoustic era not released by Victor are also included.

Chronological Discography of Stokowski's Electrical Recordings 1925-1940

 

This discography lists all the electrical recordings from 1925 to 1940 made by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski and issued by Victor.  In this case, the various 'takes' made during recording sessions not issued are not listed, but where known, the number of the 'take' which was issued is listed with the record matrix number.

Chronological Discography of Stokowski's Recordings 1941-1977

 

This discography in two parts lists all the commercial recordings made by Leopold Stokowski 1941-1977.  For reasons of size, it is organized in two lists: Stokowski recordings made 1941-1959 and Stokowski recordings made 1960-1977

 

Stokowski's was a remarkably prolific career, and he performed many concerts each year during the period 1941-1974 as you may see by visiting the page: A Listing of the Concerts of Leopold Stokowski 1941-1974 .  Many of these performances were recorded, particularly in the later years when technology allowed even members of the audience to record the concert.  Where such a performance was issued in a commercial recording, I have tried to include it in this chronological discography.  In the case of private recording or those referred to as "pirate recordings", I have tried to use discretion, primarily as to whether or not such a recording has been available to the public.

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 

 

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

http://www.mainspringpress.com/

 

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:

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/  )

 

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.

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.
