Introducing the international debut Deutsche Grammophon orchestral album from leading French-Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the
distinguished Philadelphia Orchestra. A powerful musical tribute to the mighty Leopold Stokowski (1882–1977), 35 years after his death, from the young conductor who now continues his legacy. Stokowski spent some of his most important and fruitful years in charge of the orchestra in Philadelphia, in a position that brought him some of his greatest accomplishments. Musical showmanship, free-thinking and a populist approach to contemporary music are characteristics of Stokowski’s distinguished conducting and recording career.

This new album focuses on Stravinsky’s daring, revolutionary and game-changing ballet score, The Rite of Spring – given its American premiere
performance by Stokowski and his Philadelphia Orchestra, and a work that reaches its centenary milestone in 2013. Plus a selection of popular Stokowski
transcriptions, including the famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor (J. S. Bach), as heard in its Stokowski version in Disney’s classic Mickey Mouse
movie, Fantasia. Beginning an important musical partnership for Deutsche Grammophon, expect the unexpected from one of the most exciting, energetic
and insightful young maestros of our age
