Inspired by Stokowski's original program of December 1935, when The Philadelphia Orchestra presented the U.S. premiere of Poulenc's Double Piano Concerto, Emmanuel Krivine presents a pairing of repertoire drawn directly from the archives. Recent graduates of the Curtis Institute of Music, twins Christina and Michelle Naughton play the Concerto with a unity of sound that astonishes. Franck's D minor Symphony and Stokowski's orchestration of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor are trademarks of the "Philadelphia Sound."
