Introducing the international debut Deutsche Grammophon orchestral album from leading French-Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the distinguished Philadelphia Orchestra. A powerful musical tribute to the mighty Leopold Stokowski (1882–1977), 35 years after his death, from the young conductor who now continues his legacy. Stokowski spent some of his most important and fruitful years in charge of the orchestra in Philadelphia, in a position that brought him some of his greatest accomplishments. Musical showmanship, free-thinking and a populist approach to contemporary music are characteristics of Stokowski’s distinguished conducting and recording career.

This new album focuses on Stravinsky’s daring, revolutionary and game-changing ballet score, The Rite of Spring – given its American premiere performance by Stokowski and his Philadelphia Orchestra, and a work that reaches its centenary milestone in 2013.

Plus a selection of popular Stokowski transcriptions, including the famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor (J. S. Bach), as heard in its Stokowski version in Disney’s classic Mickey Mouse movie, Fantasia.

“…its quality will put it at the top of the heap…Nézet-Séguin has a keen sense of contour, of well-judged peaks and valleys, as well as a coloristic precision that reveals the individual nature of each moment. Repeated listenings uncover new things…as much as Nézet-Séguin keeps excitement under control, he saves his most savage outburst the way one plays a trump card. The timpani eruption that ushers in “The Naming of the Chosen One” is perhaps the most emphatic on record. So great is the detail I wonder if the engineers change microphone placement for different parts of the piece. Whatever. Never in my dreams did I think such great recorded sound could be captured in Verizon Hall.” (David Patrick Stearns, Philadelphia Inquirer)
