STRAVINSKY, I.: Firebird (The) / Petrushka (Craft) (Stravinsky, Vol. 2)

This is the first recording of the Complete Original Version of Stravinsky’s most popular work, The Firebird. Among the many differences between the present recording and its predecessors is the restoration of two long, valveless trumpets on stage, each playing a single note standing out above the entire orchestra. This is a thrilling effect in all likelihood heard for the first time since 1910 on this recording. Compared to the lush orchestra of The Firebird, the sonorities of Petrushka may seem brittle but harmonically, rhythmically, and instrumentally the work is innovative on every page, a drama of great power and originality.
