  It is important to add that Leopold Stokowski was one of the handful of greatest conductors of the Twentieth Century, a judgement which can be assessed by listening to the Stokowski recordings available on this site, and by reviewing the six decades of his innovative concerts located on the pages: Listing of the Concerts of Leopold Stokowski 1933-1949 Listing of the Concerts of Leopold Stokowski 1950-1974 .   This page describes the information and recordings of Leopold Stokowski available in this site.    Themes of this Website   This site concentrates on Stokowski's recordings as a witness not only of Stokowski's career, but also of the evolution of sound recording during his era. This site further benefits from the extensive scholarship and efforts of a number of researchers and amateurs of the work of Stokowski, so generously shared with all of us who enjoy Stokowski's legacy.   Primary development of this site is first, the acoustic recordings of Stokowski and the Philadelphians from 1917 to 1924, and second, the complete legacy of electrical recordings of Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra from 1925 to 1940.   The website also includes a complete discography of Stokowski recordings 1917-1977 and a listing of his thousands of concerts performed during his long career, as well as a biography and excellent articles by José Serebrier, Edward Johnson and James H. North.   The recordings of Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra included here are nearly all of the commercial recordings released 1917-1940 in .mp3 format.  They are not from any commerical CD, and are from my source material and those of several friends who share the admiration of Stokowski's art.  However, they often lack advanced restoration technology (no de-clicking or CEDAR) and are therefore inferior to the many excellent restorations of the Stokowski - Philadelphia Orchestra recordings, about which you can read more at CDs of Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra .    The music tracks included here will allow a modern audience to hear Stokowski's many great Philadelphia Orchestra recordings, and hopefully, encourage visitors to this site to purchase some of the many excellent CDs available reproducing the historic Stokowski legacy.  In particular, Pristine Classical offers a wide range of excellent CDs and downloads of Stokowski and other great recordings restored by Andrew Rose and Mark Obert-Thorn.  Click here to visit Pristine Classical
