The great maestro Leopold Stokowski recorded Scheherazade with the Royal Philharmonic (RCA) and the London Symphony (Decca Phase 4). This album is a reissue of the latter, originally recorded in 1964. Stokowski pulls the passion in the piece out of the London Symphony and they play exceptionally well and with fine solo playing throughout. As for Marche Slave, Stokowski conducts amazingly.

Recorded Sept. 22, 1964 at Kingsway Hall (Rimsky-Korsakov) and June 15, 1972 at the Royal Albert Hall (Tchaikovsky).
