Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Authentic Stravinsky" In more than one sense. Just as he would with Mozart or Handel, Hogwood has gone back to the sources to provide solutions to a number of textual problems raised by contradictions between the printed score and the sketches of Dumbarton Oaks and, in the case of Pulcinella, between the vocal and (revised) orchestral scores.... It is an extremely enjoyable performance, 'authentically' faithful both to Stravinsky and to the Italian eighteenth century which was his inspiration... In Dumbarton Oaks the slight graininess of the string sound, the meticulous care for dynamic gradation, the subtle colour and internal balances of Stravinsky's very precisely specified chamber scoring all make for a performance of great elegance, Read more and one in which the Bachian elements are underlined... A highly desirable coupling, in short." -- The Gramophone Read less
