Christopher O'Riley is not only a very accomplished pianist, he is an astute transcriber of orchestral music into works for the piano. Though much of what is heard in this album are transcriptions written by others, O'Riley has embellished and edited his performing pieces through his intimate knowledge of Stravinsky scores. Hearing works normally heard either for huge full orchestra or by chamber ensembles played on the keyboard opens windows of amazing interiors inherent in Stravinsky's output. HISTOIRE DU SOLDAT here becomes a clever and intricate exploration of the jazz elements intrinsic to this score. Likewise in the three movements from PETROUCHKA O'Riley concentrates on the piano solos from the full score and then fills in the accompanying score to make for a very stunning and exciting reexamination of the ballet music. APOLLO is a wondrous work for string orchestra, another setting for ballet, and O'Riley makes it seem as though for the piano composed! Stravinsky was a meticulous composer, so much so that he usually wrote his vast scores in pen and ink - a means not readily altered as easily as simple pencil marks! In this truly remarkable album that approach to the precision of Stravinsky's genius is made even more apparent. Highly recommended.

I only heard parts of this CD on the radio, and I was completely striken by amazing record quality - it wasn't just a great performance, it was acoustical and sound balance masterpiece.

The O'Rileys use of the instrument is groundshaking. I loved the richness of the sounds he extracts from the piano - it's very much outside the box, so massive and powerful, and at the same time fantastically clear at all times - very rare qualify among pianists. The ease and freedom with which he is navigating through clasters and layers of melodies and rythms in Stravinsky's music are remarkable. His Petrouchka rendition can be compared with the oil paintings, where every detail is a part of one big picture, and yet, so carefully individually thought through. Strangely enough, I could also compare his performance with Cirque Du Soleil shows, where there are so many different plots being developed at all times, and no matter which way you look, you can see a real drama in every little secondary character on stage.

Whether you are familiar with Stravinsky's works or not - this is a great CD to add to your collection.
