Chicago Symphony Orchestra
KHACHATURIAN: Symphony Nº 3 for Orchestra, Organ and 15 Trumpets
RIMSKY-KORSAKOFF: Russian Easter Overture
MENDELSSOHN: A Midsummers Night’s Dream - Incidental Music*
Overture, Scherzo, Nocturne and Wedding March
Stokowski has achieved here a sonic blockbuster with the 3rd Symphony of Khachaturian and the familiar Russian Easter Overture of Rimsky-Korsakoff. Worry not, there is no use of a baritone solo as was the case in an earlier Stokowski recording of this familiar overture, all with incredible brass and low end effects. The Martinon Mendelssohn is a rare recording and demos wonderful playing especially from the CSO brass. Truly one of the best recording of this music ever.
