The Nutcracker Suite was recorded in 1950. The other items were recorded in 1953. With the exception of the Humoresque I believe that all the items above are available on various CALA releases. If you don't have them get them instead of this disc. The sound here is terrible, thin and wiry strings, no Stokowski Sound at all. The Cala issues are much deeper, fuller and more transparent. They do justice to The Stokowski Legacy. This issue does not. Nuff said.
