It was as a young church organist that Leopold Stokowski grew to love the music of Bach. Later, he arranged a number of Bach’s organ works for full symphonic forces. The results were a spectacular success and through Stokowski’s Bach transcriptions music lovers heard baroque music in a new guise. Some of Stokowski’s finest Bach arrangements are newly recorded here in highly enjoyable performances by José Serebrier and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. As one of the Leopold Stokowski Society’s chief aims is to encourage performances of Stokowski’s Symphonic Transcriptions we welcome his new Bach-Stokowski selection as a brilliant successor to the disc of Stokowski’s transcriptions of music by Mussorgsky (8.557645).     – The Leopold Stokowski Society
