More of the music of Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971)

Our Price: $219.99

  • Double Plus (A++) Front Row Center sound or close to it on both sides for one of the all time great recordings of The Firebird

Stravinsky changes the orchestration of his themes at each repetition, breaks them down into their constituent parts, pushes their accents across the bar-line, and moves them out of sync with their own accompaniments."

Beethoven / Symphony No. 9 / Ansermet

  (Item #: beethsym9_1702) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Side two is just shy of our top grade (A++ to A+++), wonderfully rich and lively, and second only to the best we heard all day
  • Side one is also superb, A++, which easily makes this pressing a Must Own Beethoven 9th
  • Both sides play reasonably well for a London pressing from 1960, but there are some issues, noted below
  • "...the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande play very well, facing every challenge with musical integrity that reveals to the listener that emotional engagement with the score is far more meaningful than virtuosity for its own sake."
