It's not as bad as it might be, but still, except as a memento of the occasion, there really isn't much reason for Eugene Ormandy's 1967 recording of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis to have been reissued. Columbia's stereo sound was distant and a little tubby and Sony's digital remastering is a little closer but still tubby. The singing is okay but nothing special: Arroyo's is probably the best, but Forrester, and especially Siepi, were showing their vocal age by 1967.

"This recording is remarkable for it's mixture of quiet, subtle virtuosity, musicianship and style. Both concertos are played as if they are works of art as opposed to technical showpieces. Mr. Ax is this generations Rudolph Serkin. Ormandy provides the idiomatic, thankless accompaniment with expert finesse."

Rarely thought of as a Mozart conductor, Eugene Ormandy made delightful recordings of all the wind and brass concertos with his “Fabulous Philadelphians” between 1957 and 1962. Known best for its sumptuous strings, the Philadelphia Orchestra has also boasted some of the world’s most distinguished instrumentalists among its principal wind players, now-legendary names like flautist William Kincaid, clarinettist John de Lancie and horn player Mason Jones. They are the soloists in these splendid recordings, which also serve as a reminder of how superb an accompanist Ormandy was.

In Perlman's words, Tchaikovsky "wears his heart on his sleeve" and his violin concerto is a work of "unabashed Romanticism". While bringing sensitivity and substance to his interpretation, Perlman never slips into sentimentality and he leads an exhilarating dance in the finale.

There are several reasons why the popularity of Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra has declined so steeply since their glory days in the '50s and '60s. For one thing, Ormandy hung on to his post in Philadelphia a tad too long, and recordings from the later '70s and '80s are for the most part marked by audible fatigue. For another, Columbia and RCA, now Song/BMG, have been reluctant to reissue Ormandy's classic recordings on CD and nearly as reluctant to keep them in print after the first few press runs.

Leopold Anthony Stokowski was a British conductor of Polish heritage. One of the leading conductors of the early and mid-20th Century, he is best known for his long association with the Philadelphia Orchestra and for appearing in the film Fantasia.
