Beethoven 6 - NBC, Stokowski




Here a colourful & joyful "Pastoral" conducted by Stokowski: in my opinion his best recording of this work. Then, his first beethoveenian recording (acoustic): the II mov from Symphony no. 8 (1920).
Last but not least, the Pagan Poem by Charles Loeffler (1861-1935): a neglected but very fascinating score composed in 1906.
