Product Description

Product Description


This is an excellent Stravinsky collection on all counts. Claudio Abbado's recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra represent the high-water mark of his career, and DG captured the partnership in generally fine sound. This recording of the complete Pulcinella, with the songs included, set an entirely new standard for the work, and its excellence has worn very well in the couple of decades since its initial release. The performance of Jeu de Cartes (Card Game) also should win many new friends for this entertaining late work. As to the Big Three ballets, all of them were among the most recommendable versions when they first came out, and they still are. --David Hurwitz

5.0 out of 5 stars Un Petrushka estupendo. Oct. 15 2001
Format:Audio CD
Bueno, mi comentario es solamente de Petrushka (Lo tengo en un disco suelto, como originalmente salió al mercado).
Abbado desde el primer acorde del Ballet nos sumerge a un mundo sonoro cálido y lleno de detalles exquisitos, exponiendo la partitura de Stravinsky con toda su belleza. Abbado hace un manejo de balances perfecto, apoyado por excelentes instrumentistas de la London Symphony Orchestra. Utiliza la versión de 1911 que en ciertos pasajes se forman dentro de la orquesta, conjuntos de cámara, en forma más delicada que en la versión revisada de 1947.
Esta versión junto con la de Boulez con la New York Philharmonic (Sony), no confundir con la posterior en Deutsche Grammophon y la orquesta de Cleveland, son mis favoritas de la partitura original (1911). Para la versión revisada (1947), recomiendo Antal Dorati en Mercury.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stravinsky BALLET : 5 in 1 March 1 2013
Format:Audio CD
For once , Abbado did it . LSO is outstanding .
Rite of Spring (1975) among the top contenders, Firebird (72) the best I heard, together with Petrushka (80), Pulcinella (78) & Jeu de Cartes (74)
make up the total 5 . Dollar for more . Better than Haitink (1974) , C.Davis (1975) sets .
The remastered 1972 - 80 sound is excellent .
Alternative set : Chailly / 1997 RCO for Apollo, Firebird & Petrushka , 1987 Cleveland O. for Rite of Spring .
If you are interested in "Rite of Spring" only : there are Muti/Philadelphia 1979 , Dorati/DetriotSO 1981 , Solti/CSO 1974 .

5.0 out of 5 stars Needless to say, it's excellent. Dec 4 1999
Format:Audio CD
How we miss Abbado in the LSO, he had a great rapport with the orchestra and it shows in these sensational CD's from the 70's and early 80's. His understanding of Stravinsky and his wizard-like handling of colours and textures have not been equalled. On top of it, there is the goddess Teresa Berganza in Pulcinella. Go and buy this set!.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Abbado May 25 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A great performance by Abbado and the orchestra, even though the sound of the recording is not as good as the performance, except for Pétroushka. Still, I recomend this CD if you are interested in Stravinsky

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Interpretations of Stravinsky From Abbado March 26 2002
By John Kwok TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This magnificient two CD set contains some of Abbado's finest recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra. His great interpretations of Stravinsky's scores can easily hold their own against those from the likes of Bernstein, Boulez, Haitink, and more recent interpreters such as Gergiev. His "Le Scare du printemps" is one of the most dramatic recordings I've heard, replete with tense, vibrant playing from the London Symphony Orchestra. It is a visceral, emotionally raw account pulsating with energy. Equally noteworthy is his splendid interpretation of "L'Oiseau de feu", which is a brisk, dramatic performance. Both "Jeu de cartes" and the entire score of "Pulcinella" are very pleasant surprises too. My only slight criticism is Abbado's interpretation of "Petrouchka" which doesn't sound as dramatic as Haitink's with the London Philharmonic. The sound quality on these image bit digitally remastered CDs is absolutely stunning; it sounds as good as contemporary recordings.
