Description

The works that Leopold Stokowski rehearsed in this 1970 TV programme have previously been uploaded separately: Barber's 'Adagio for Strings'; Schubert's 'Unfinished' Symphony; and Rachmaninoff's 'Paganini' Rhapsody with Jerome Lowenthal at the piano and the American Symphony Orchestra. However, for anyone wishing to see the whole programme uninterrupted, here it is again in complete form. The filming took place in the Madison Square Gardens new building and was one of the rehearsals for the opening concert there on 3 February 1968. Every bit as vital as a man half his age, Stokowski was then in his 87th year!
