Remembering the Maestro in Music, Words, and Cyberspace

Last summer, the Curtis Institute of Music transferred the bulk of its Leopold Stokowski Collection to the University libraries. Two months ago, in honor of that acquisition, the Friends of the Library sponsored a concert by the University of Pennsylvania Symphony Orchestra, a symposium — which featured a talk by Bernard Jacobson, a former program annotator and musicologist for the Philadelphia Orchestra, and a panel discussion titled “Music-making with the Maestro” — as well as an exhibition in the Kamin Gallery/Klein Lounge of Van Pelt-Dietrich Library that runs through June 26. 
   An audiotape of that symposium is available for listening in the on-line exhibit of the Stokowski Collection, which also includes photographs, excerpts from taped interviews, videos, and recordings — among them the only known recording of Stokowski playing the organ, in Bach’s Passacaglia in c minor
