Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For my taste, Stravinsky is by far the most outstanding 20th century composer. His version of "modern music" is one of the few that appeals to me greatly. On this disc his Rite of Spring is superb - much better and more exciting than other versions I have heard. Petrushka and Firebird are outstanding, and Apollo is quite good as well. My only reservation with this 2-CD set is that the sound was a little annoying. As it was recorded, some sections are so quiet that you have to turn the speakers way up to hear them at all. However, if you can get past that little quirk, you will be very pleased with the quality of this set. One other spectacular thing about this set is its ridiculously low price! It is a great value and will bring you hours of musical pleasure.

I actually got this recording for both Firebird and Petrushka, which are childhood favorites. I have several "Rite of Spring" recordings. This is a very good compilation of early popular Stravinksi "warhorses" for a very reasonable price. Recommended.

A refreshing relief from the 18th and early 19th century pap we have been enduring in the concert halls and on the radio.
