Goof collection of Russian music under Stoki's baton July 25 2009
By Archaeologist - Published on
Verified Purchase
Well, this cd is getting pricy, and I hope my giving five stars to it won't make its price even higher.

I basically bought it for Stokowski's arrangement of Boris Godunov. I heard this many years ago. This is a masterpiece. There are some other performances from Stokowski's arrangement under other conductors, but, no, they can't match his conducting. Stokowski was an expert of Russian music, and I think this CD does justice to him. The only thing missing here is his arrangement of Khovanshchina (available only in a DECCA set). There is also an interesting symphonic arrangement of Boris Gudunov - though shorter - by SHostakovich (conducted by Gergiev). The remastering is pretty good.

Great performances April 6 2012
By D. R. Schryer - Published on
Leopold Stokowski was one of the greatest conductors ever recorded and he had a particular affinity for Russian music. This CD presents a collection of outstanding Russian music played with Stokowski's unique talent, artistry, and passion. If you -- like I -- enjoy hearing great music from the Romantic era played with unrestrained enthusiasm as well as genuine artistry and beauty, you will probably love this CD.

I note this is the only re-released Phase 4 CD that is now being sold at way above retail prices. Which is a bit hard on those living on retirement incomes who owned these vinyl records when they were first released nearly 50 years ago? For many possibly the first classical music they were tempted to buy due to the allure of the Phase 4 process and rave reviews for some of Stokowski’s best efforts.

What I for one find reassuring is Cala’s recent release of Stokowski’s Phase 4 Scheherazade has confirmed his recordings were just as great as one thought at the time. Only increasing the mystery as to why modern engineers refuse to use Decca’s technique of separating various sections of the orchestra so lesser instruments can he heard as clearly as the strings. Which are also balanced-out by giving the double basses a much stronger (than normal) presence.

The merits of this collection of Russian favorites needs no extolling by me but I can’t help mentioning Stokowski’s very loud pulses starting Marche Slave obviously do not follow Tchaikovsky’s intentions but once heard make every other version by illustrious Russian conductors appear pathetically wimpy.

But to pay so much to hear this Marche Slave is simply not fair. But hang on - all is not lost. On Japanese Amazon this disc is one of a “Decca Best Plus 50” series - all selling for $10. For postage one pays another $10 but when they say “Express Delivery” they mean it - and it was on my Las Vegas doorstep in less than 2 days! Therefore for a very reasonable price one can own a super-high-quality Japanese CD and enjoy that incredible Phase 4 sound just as remembered from those precious scratchy vinyl records dating back to the late 60’s.
