Topic - Leopold Stokowski
A century after Leopold Stokowski took the reins of The Philadelphia Orchestra, a history detective set on his trail has tracked down rarely-seen correspondence and belongings of the conductor affectionately known as "Stoki."
"It was real archival detective work," he said this week. "I was able to find some interesting artifacts ... it was pretty thrilling to have those primary source materials in my hands."
Before the "Temple of Music" project was shelved by the Great Depression, Stokowski had been urging organizers to choose his friend, architect Frank Lloyd Wright, to design what would have been a modernist music palace on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
