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)
The Victor Red Seal Discography Volume 2: Double-Sided Series to 1930
Both of these were published by the excellent discography source Mainspring Press of Denver
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.

(Note that Enno Riekena also publishes his own CDs of Stokowski broadcasts
which you can see at his Leopold Stokowski Site
. Theo van der Berg also had extensive Stokowski CDs from his private
at his web site

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

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
These chronological discographies are separated into
an acoustic discography covering 1917 to 1924 and an
discography of electrical process recordings covering
1925 to 1940.
this covers all the acoustic recordings from 1917 to 1924 with
the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski and released by Victor.
