Beautifully performances from Reiner and his golden years leading the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Reiner understands perfectly well the subtle intentions of such a contradictory (and chamaleonic) comlposer as Stravinsky was. Plenty of pulse when neccesary, humorous where the music demands it and, no lrast, slighty misterious when the score asks it. The sound quality is superb in. "The Song of The Nightingale (perhaps a little bit too brassy the metals in the fortissimi). Unfortunately, and this prevets me for giving the album five stars, this very high sound quality falls quite clerly in. "The Fairy Queen", being an extraordinary version, anyway. Recommend, no doubt
Stravinsky. Reiner. Mohr/Layton. Living Stereo. 'Nuff said. What more do you want?
the great stravinsky, by a great orchestra and conductor, in always eXcellent rca living stereo
Great classic album. Recording quality is ensured with an unusual analog sound. You are surprised by an incredible sound stereophonic in 3D with all the detail and all accuracy of the musicians placement. The sweetness and warmth of the instruments stamps are present. This is a classic artwork to have in your cds collection as audiophile. I highly recommend it.
Great music, of course, and these Reiner/CSO recordings are always great.
