This is the second release in our Historical series of Leopold Stokowski conducting premieres of important twentieth-century symphonies. On this unique double album set, we have six symphonies, by Stravinsky, Hindemith, Hanson, Harris, Karl Amadeus Hartmann and Alan Hovhaness, further examples of the conducting genius that was Leopold Stokowski, amongst which is the uniquely valuable only surviving recording of Roy Harris’s impressive Seventh Symphony - the work was extensively revised after this performance took place. The performance of Hartmann’s Second Symphony ’Adagio’ with the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra from 1955 earned the composer’s total admiration. This is a superb and immensely valuable issue.
