The Polish-American conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczewski died this past February. He is probably best known to Americans for his nineteen-year tenure as the music director of the Minnesota Orchestra. He also conducted many other orchestras, and made many records. His compositions were twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will review his career.
