Leopold Stokowski began his career in England as an organist and choirmaster. This first major study of Stokowski’s early years covers his education at the Royal College of Music his church posts in London and his three years spent as director of music at New York’s prestigious St. Bartholomew’s Church. An examination of the programs of his organ recitals (played on the third largest organ in America) a list of his repertoire facsimiles of his original choral works an analysis of his Aeolian player organ roll of Bach’ s Passacaglia and a detailed study of his famous orchestral transcriptions of Bach’s organ works reveals a new and unique insight into Stokowski's unparalleled career in music.
