“This performance finds Stokowski at his most musical incisive, making the most of Rimsky-Korsakov’s exotic timbres and vibrating rhythms, while the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs with well-oiled smoothness and precision.” — Classics Today

A leading conductor of the twentieth century, Leopold Stokowski conducts the music of Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, including his landmark Sheherazade and lesser-heard Russian Easter Overture.
