Fine music-making and sound from Stokie, here. So why only 4 stars 1) The Ride of the Valkyries that was also on the original LSC2555 has mysteriously disappeared and 2) The bulk of the recording comprises the Tannhauser overture and Venusberg music. Hand on heart, I have to tell you that the BMG/Sound Mirror SACD of the Stokowski 'Rhapsodies' features a direct from transfer of this piece from the master, and sounds sensational (the rest, not so hot...).
