Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring/Pulcinella Suite

Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring/Pulcinella Suite Lowest new price: $11.24
Lowest used price: $1.74
Model: 2022993

SALE PRICE : 1992 release from Israeli conductor with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on Telarc, performing Igor Stravinsky's 'Rite Of Spring' & 'Pulcinella Suite'.

These two ballets represent the opposite extremes of Stravinsky's creative personality. On the one hand, there's The Rite of Spring, the ultimate expression of musical primitivism (so much so that it served as "dinosaur" music in Disney's Fantasia). On the other hand, there's Pulcinella, and elegant neo-classical confection based on the music of Italian Baroque masters, Pergolesi in particular. Even if they have little else in common, both pieces require pinpoint rhythmic accuracy, and they are smartly performed here. But beyond the high general standard of performance, The Rite of Spring demands superior recording quality; it's one of those audio demo pieces, and in that regard Telarc has really stepped up to the plate. So go ahead; blow up your speakers! --David Hurwitz

Stravinsky: The Firebird (Complete Ballet); Fireworks; Song of the Nightingale Lowest used price: $15.98

Antal Dorati was a veteran ballet conductor and a personal friend of Stravinsky. His recording of The Firebird was a legend in its own time, and its reappearance on CD, sounding better than ever, immediately reestablished its supremacy. All of Stravinsky's complete ballets--as opposed to the suites-- have "dead spots," moments when the music sort of stops and lurches about, illustrating something happening onstage. That's why the composer made the suites in the first place. However, many of his most fascinating orchestral ideas occur precisely in these "dead spots," which is why many conductors and audiences prefer the works complete. Trust Dorati: he's the most reliable guide to this music, and his orchestra gives him a virtuoso response. --David Hurwitz

Stravinsky In America

A fascinating compilation of works, both major and minor, that illustrate Stravinsky's genius interacting with an America far from his Russian roots and Parisian inclinations. Included are pieces as dizzyingly varied as arrangements of our national anthem and "Happy Birthday" to the hermetic, atonal Huxley Variations. Michael Tilson Thomas excels in all of them, conveying the immense stature as well as the icy wit of the all-too-rarely heard Agon, the raucous humor of the Circus Polka, and the jewel-like precision of the Variations. Throughout, MTT captures Stravinsky's biting rhythms and imparts an austere beauty to works such as the Variations that seem, in other hands, simply austere. He benefits from an impressive sound that reveals every detail. One of the conductor's finest discs, and essential for anyone interested in 20th-century music. --Dan Davis

Classical Princess: Music for Dress Up Lowest new price: $9.86
Lowest used price: $2.98

You know the classical compilation business is getting serious when you have artists like conductor Andrew Litton and the Dallas Symphony on a record of music for little kids to play dress-ups by. On this disc, packaged explicitly for that purpose, participants include the Seattle Symphony, the English Chamber Orchestra, and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Nothing but the best for my kid! The selections were apparently chosen by a girl, pictured on the cover, who looks to be about five or six. She's done a great job. There's lots of Tchaikovsky here, as well as Grieg, Gliere, and Prokofiev. It's great music and the disc, with its cheerful cover, will likely bring a smile to the lips of many adults as well as children. --Gwendolyn Freed
