Stokowski Recordings with the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1930

In 1930, Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra recorded much less music than during the three previous rich years of 1927, 1928, and 1929.  Perhaps this was due to Victor caution, following the great stock market crash of the previous October, 1929.  In any case, there were only four days of recording during the year 1930: Saturday, 15 March 1930, and following the final concert of the Philadelphia Orchestra 1929-1930 season, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 28, 29 and 30 April 1930. 

From these sessions, thirteen 78 RPM sides were issued.  As an indication of the direction of Stokowski's interests at that period, it is remarkable that 7 of these 13 sides were of Stokowski transcriptions or orchestrations.  Five sides of Baroque music, and two sides of Debussy piano music.  The other two recordings were of works Stokowski and the Orchestra had performed during this 1929-1930 season: SibeliusFinlandia, and the Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture.
