5.0 out of 5 stars Finding an old friend and new wonders 25 April 2002
By A. G. Plumb - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Many years ago I owned a prerecorded tape of Stokowski transcriptions which included 'Tu mancavi a tormentarmi, crudelissima speranza' by Antonio Cesti. This is a wonderfully evocative piece that raised impossible imagery of fleets of spaceships passing in the stillness of deep space, seen but not acknowledged to each other. Neither Cesti nor Stokoswki could have seen the music this way, but for me .... Anyway I stopped listening to tapes and lost contact with the piece. As twenty years or so passed I became more and more haunted by my memory of Stokowski's transcription - just how similar to Barber's celebrated Adagio is the Cesti, I couldn't help but ask myself?
Of course, I kept looking for the piece but until now no collections of Stokowski included it. But here it is again. And doesn't it still invoke the same response (and it is only superficially like the Barber). I love this CD for this piece if for nothing else - but there is so much enjoyable music here, I recommend it to all music lovers.
Incidentally, searching for this CD under its title 'Stokowski's Orchestral Baroque' fails because of a text error in the title at
5.0 out of 5 stars Stokowski's Transcriptions are Brilliant 15 Sep 2013
By Kyle Vogele - Published on
Format:Audio CD
As the other reviewer mentioned, I gravitated toward this recording after hearing the Byrd Pavane on my local classical station and thinking just how markedly IT represents Barber's Adagio (if only in small part).

Certainly not a perfect recording of Stokowski's work, but I love his orchestrations. Worth listening.
