Leopold Anthony Stokowski (18 April 1882 – 13 September 1977) was an English conductor of Polish descent. One of the leading conductors of the early and mid-20th century, he is best known for his long association with the Philadelphia Orchestra and his appearance in the Disney film Fantasia. He was especially noted for his free-hand conducting style that spurned the traditional baton and for obtaining a characteristically sumptuous sound from the orchestras he directed.

From 1947 to 1953, "Leopold Stokowski and His Symphony Orchestra" made about 100 recordings for RCA Victor. Conventional wisdom has it that this orchestra was a mix of players from the New York Philharmonic, the NBC Symphony, and local freelancers. That turns out to be very misleading. Like Sir Thomas Beecham, he founded and conducted new orchestras at every turn: the All-American Youth Orchestra, the New York City Symphony, the Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra, and eventually the American Symphony Orchestra. Stokowski and Greta Garbo featured in a 1938 movie magazine. He needed a major orchestra of his own, and he seemed to get it when Toscanini left the NBC Symphony Orchestra in 1941, but the old maestro returned in 1944.
