Editorial Reviews

This arrangement of Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring for Fireworks is breath-taking. Never has the Rite been played with such edge and verve.

Fireworks looks and sounds like a rock band, but performs with the virtuosity and sensitivity of a classical chamber music ensemble. This amplified group consists of flute, clarinet, guitar, violin, cello, bass, piano, and percussion. The group’s daring conductorless performance of the work continues to wow audiences everywhere, and remains the ensemble’s most requested and most popular work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely fresh take on a classic! February 14, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Writing about a recent performance in Hartford, composer and critic Robert Carl summed it up well: "This simply has to be heard to be believed; the music sounds completely contemporary in this orchestration, and one hears things one never has before. It's a gamble that triumphs." This is an essential CD for Stravinsky fans and rockers alike.
