Stokowski Conducts in the USSR



From the collection of Karl Miller



Johann Sebastian Bach: Little Fugue in G Minor (transcribed by Stokowski)
Wagner: Lohengrin Act I, Prelude
Wagner: Tristan and Isolde: Prelude and Liebestod (Transcribed by Stokowski)
Ravel:  Alborada del Gracioso
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique"
Barber: Adagio for Strings


USSR State Radio and TV Large Symphonhy Orchestra
Conducted by Leopold Stokowski
[30 June 1958]


For completely childish reasons, I'd also suggest you check out the classic
Bugs Bunny cartoon where Bugs imitated Leopold to get revenge on an opera
singer.

I have just completed uploading a trio of British cello concertos (Berkeley, ApIvor, and Osborne).  Let the record show, however, that these performances were contributed by member Greg K and that my role was limited to some (very minor) assistance with the actual uploads.  Thanks to Greg, as well as sincere apologies for my slothfulness in actually completing the uploads.

Thank you both for your contribution although I think you will find that the Lennox Berkeley Dialogue is already in our Archive in the same performance.

The Denis apIvor Cello Concerto is especially welcome. The Nigel Osborne is not for me.....but others will no doubt appreciate it.

Not to worry Grin We have such a wealth of music in that Archive that it is well-nigh impossible to remember everything Grin

Didn't know that either, or I'd have not put you up to it, Brian.

I now recall that it was actually I who provided the original recording of the performance Roll Eyes Grin

Before however we go any further......it is always worth checking to see if the "duplicate" recording is actually of better sound quality. I know that some of my recordings of the period leave something to be desired and if your recording is better then I would be more than happy to have mine withdrawn and yours substituted!

Somewhat lackluster as I recall finding the piece, my inclination to make the comparison you suggest is correspondingly weak.

Having recently lamented the paucity of recordings of the music of Colin Matthews it is only appropriate that I thank northern for his upload of "Traces Remain"-an affecting and mpressive piece.

Thanks for posting the download of the performance of the Delius Requiem given in Cardiff on 1 July as part of the anniversary commemoration of the Somme. I attended this concert and reviewed it for MusicWeb International. In the course of that review I commented on the poor balance in the hall, which the broadcast sound has completely rectified. I also mentioned that so far as I could discover this was the first time that the score had been sung in German (at least in the UK), although Delius's full score (admittedly from a German publisher) gives priority to that language. Nobody so far has sought to correct that impression.

I have just uploaded Morfydd Owen's tone poem Morfa Rhuddlan from a 2014 BBC broadcast.
This is a short info from the website:
The Welsh tune Morfa Rhuddlan commemmorates a savage battle between the Welsh and the Saxons in the eighth century.

Humphrey Searle - The Riverrun

It is not with the voice wished for, but this is the only version I have. Above that, it was not listed in our archives
It is a rather old recording, that I tried to make a little better.

I posted it in the British and Irish Music section
