Leopold Stokowski Chronological Discography 1960-1977

 

This is a chronological listing of the commercially issued recordings of Leopold Stokowski 1960-1977.  (You may also see a Leopold Stokowski Chronological Discography 1941-1959 by clicking here ). 

 

Earlier Stokowski Discographies are:

Leopold Stokowski Chronological Discography 1917-1924

Leopold Stokowski Chronological Discography 1925-1940

 

This listing includes recording dates, orchestras, soloists and other relevant recording information, including matrix numbers, where known, are are included in the discography.  I have also tried to include certain key reissue numbers of these 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.  Also, certain discs have been excluded from this discography; you can read why by clicking hear to read of excluded recordings.

 

Given the prolific quantity (and also quality) of Stokowski's recordings made 1960-1977, this listing continues to be a work in process.  Any additions, corrections or other comments will be welcome by contacting me.

A note on recordings excluded from this discography

 

In this discography, and elsewhere in this www.stokowski.org site, there are a number of record company labels which I have not included.  In the reissue of historic recordings, there are, unfortunately, a number of labels that seem to me to simply take certain restorations of historic recordings by famous restoration engineers and re-issue them under their own label.  These companies may add some added processing, perhaps with CEDAR or other processes, change equalization, sometimes drastically, with a result that usually degrades the quality of the original restoration.

 

In my opinion, these are 'knock-offs' of the work of others.  If my opinion is correct, then these labels should not be supported.  Here is a list of labels which I judge to be in this category:

 

Grammofono

Iron Needle

Classica D'Oro

Phonographe

Magic Talent

Magic Master

Arkadia
