5.0 out of 5 stars A Stravinsky Grab Bag May 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This CD is part of the extensive Naxos series comprising Stravinsky works conducted by his acolyte, Robert Craft. Some of my favorites in that series are the one containing the Symphony in C and the Symphony in Three Movements Stravinsky: Symphony in C; Symphony In Three Movements, the Symphony of Psalms Stravinsky: Symphony of Psalms, The Fairy's Kiss and Pulcinella Stravinsky: Pulcinella; The Fairy's Kiss and the later ballets (Jeu de Cartes et al.) Stravinsky: Later Ballets. The present disc contains three chamber works: Duo Concertant for Violin and Piano (1932) played by Jennifer Frautschi, violin, and Jeremy Denk, piano; the Sonata for Two Pianos (1943-44) played by Ralph van Raat and Maarten van Veen, and Élégie for Viola (1944) played by Richard O'Neill. The works conducted by Craft are the Requiem Canticles (1965-66), Abraham and Isaac, a Sacred Ballad for Baritone and Chamber Orchestra (1962-62), and Stravinsky's rescoring for chamber orchestra of the Bluebird Pas de Deux from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty ballet.

The Duo Concertant is probably best known as the music for the ballet of the same name choreographed in 1972 for the New York City Ballet by George Balanchine. The Sonata for Two Pianos was written in America but is based solidly on Russian themes. It was soon picked up as a repertoire piece by such illustrious two-piano teams as Vonsky and Babin, and Gold and Fizdale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Stravinsky Fans! July 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This Naxos CD is simply essential if you are a fan of the music of Igor Stravinsky. It contains rarely-recorded (or performed) works in uniformly excellent performances and sound quality. The 11-minute Sonata for Two Pianos (1943-44) is a very accessible work in a rare genre and the two pianists do a terrific job with it. This is pleasant and light music that is hard not to enjoy. By contrast, the 5-minute Elegie for Solo Viola (1944) is a melancholy work that is played beautifully here. The "Bluebird" (1941) is an arrangement of about six minutes from Tchaikovsky's "Sleeping Beauty" ballet music for chamber orchestra. As Robert Craft writes in his excellent notes, Stravinsky improved upon Tchaikovsky's orchestration here and I strongly recommend giving it a listen. It is played to perfection by the Twentieth Century Chamber Ensemble led by Craft and, as the last work on the CD, leaves the listener with a "sweet" feeling after some of the modernism that precedes it. The 14-minute Abraham and Isaac ballad (1962-63) is perhaps the greatest of Stravinsky's serial works. It is not as accessible as the Sonata or Bluebird but it is a very powerful and memorable work. Stravinsky dedicated it to "the people of Israel" and personally sent the manuscript as a gift to Jerusalem's mayor. It is the only work by Stravinsky that is sung in Hebrew, taking the text of Genesis 22:1-19 which tells the story of Abraham being tested by God to sacrifice his son Isaac and how when God sees that Abraham is willing to do so, He makes known that He does not wish to see any harm come to Isaac as He does not delight in human sacrifice.
