His Tchaikovsky is often revelatory (none here, unfortunately), but all of that pales beside his quite extraordinary interpretation of Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade. No other version I have heard so clearly captures the rich sonority of this score, and makes the contrast between the fury of the elements and the beguiling sensuousness of the prince and his princess so achingly apparent.

The years have seen Pierre Boulez record for CBS, Erato, EMI, and Philips, among other labels, but his most consistent and critically praised work has appeared on Deutsche Grammophon, where he has conducted the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic, and his own Ensemble InterContemporain in many successful performances. These ensembles are heard on this trimline, six-CD box set of Igor Stravinsky's major works, which brings together Boulez's recordings of L'oiseau de feu, Petrushka, Le Sacre du printemps, L'histoire du Soldat, the symphonies, concertos, and other works, recorded between 1980 and 1996. As one of the leading champions of modernism, first as a composer and essayist, then as a prominent conductor, Boulez is regarded as an authority on Stravinsky's oeuvre, and it is difficult to imagine many conductors who have a better understanding of the technical and stylistic issues that affect performances. Boulez is also famous for his precision and meticulousness, which make the details stand out clearly in the rhythmically complex and texturally dense orchestral scores of the ballets, and yet seem so delicate and exact in the concertos and pieces for smaller ensembles.

Stravinsky’s collaboration with the violinist Samuel Dushkin was a great artistic success, generating new works for the repertoire as well as arrangements of some of the composer’s most tuneful and popular works. Of these arrangements, Dushkin wrote that Stravinsky seemed ‘to go back to the essence of the music and rewrite or recreate the music in the spirit of the new instrument’. Reviewing the current performers in The Independent, Bayan Northcott writes that ‘these are no ordinary transcriptions. In reducing items from The Firebird or The Fairy’s Kiss to the violin and piano medium, Stravinsky rethought and respaced their every chord’.

Stravinsky Conducts Stravinsky - The Original Jacket Collection
EAC | FLAC + CUE, Scans | No Logs | 9-CD, 1.8 GB | RAR 1% Recovery, RS/MU
Classical | Sony, Rec. 1948-71, Rel. 1999 | Igor Stravinsky

So why bother with the Original Jacket Collection? There are two reasons: One, these new remasterings improve upon previous CD transfers; two, there's a bonus disc with rare material from the 1940s, featuring the New York Philharmonic, the Woody Herman Orchestra, and violinist Joseph Szigeti. This material is stunningly restored from the original laquers, and sounds amazingly vivid and full-bodied.
Stravinsky knew how his music should sound, and usually got the results he wanted. True, there are recorded interpretations of certain Stravinsky works that are slicker and better engineered. Few, however, match the authority and sense of occasion you get from the proverbial horse's mouth.

Paavo Järvi’s outstanding reputation makes him one of the most sought-after conductors on the international stage. Born in Tallinn, Estonia, he studied percussion and conducting at the Tallinn School of Music before moving to the USA in 1980, where he continued his studies at the Curtis Institute of Music and at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute with Leonard Bernstein.

...After listening to this disc countless times, one is amazed at Stravinsky's musical invention and genius. Stravinsky is most certainly the star of the recording. However, for such a young and relatively inexperienced conductor - at least on the international stage - Eiji Oue has certainly made an impact with this debut recording. He could not have chosen his partners better. Composer, orchestra and engineer have been combined to make his performances grace the ear and soul, and cannot be too highly recommended.

Un spectacle inoubliable autour de trois ballets de Stravinsky, avec notamment Le sacre du printemps dans la version originale de Nijinski.
A Russian folk tale in two scenes. Serge de Diaghilev heard Stravinsky for the first time on 6 February 1909, the day when his Fantastic Scherzo and Fireworks were created. Diaghilev was extremely impressed by this last work. Since his Ballets Russes had already performed for a season in Paris in 1909 and were a great success, he wished to repeat the experience the following year and include a brand new work inspired by the legend of the Firebird.
