Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony deliver exhilarating live performances of Stravinsky’s The Firebird and Vladimir Nikolaev’s The Sinewaveland: Homage to Jimi Hendrix.

Continuing Seattle Symphony Media’s acclaimed tradition of mixing the familiar with the unfamiliar, this superb disc couples a thrilling live recording of Stravinsky’s complete ballet The Firebird with Russian composer Vladimir Nikolaev’s tribute to Seattle’s own Jimi Hendrix, The Sinewaveland, described as “an image of Hendrix atop Bald Mountain, lighting his guitar on fire.

With naturalistic imaging, depth of field and dynamic range, all Seattle Symphony Media recordings have been engineered to audiophile standards and aim to capture as
Read more realistically as possible the sound of the orchestra performing on the Benaroya Hall stage. Digital content will be available on stereo, 96k 24-bit high resolution and 5.1 surround sound. Read less
