Famed New York violinist Raoul Poliakin is highly regarded as a conductor of 
popular orchestral music. As a violinist, arranger, conductor, he has appeared 
on countless albums, including those of Frank Sinatra, Antonio Carlos Jobim 
and Wes Montgomery, to name a few. On this classic 1960 audiophile 
recording, The Music Of Richard Rodgers / The Music Of Harold Arlen, 
Poliakin's imaginative reinterpretations of major American standard songs 
results in a unique listening experience. In addition to Poliakin's authoritative 
conducting, the striking attractiveness of these arrangements are underlined 
by the flawless quality of sound, made possible by techniques developed by 
master engineers working at the beginning of the stereo era. For this album 
Poliakin conducts a 54-man orchestra and a 20-voice choir.

  2. Hi Vlad,
