 Really NIce Recordings March 8, 2019 By P. Webb (Madison Heights, VA) See All My Reviews "I purchased this set because my book club just finished reading Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky. This popped up in a newsletter and I thought how great it would be to play recordings of his music conducted by himself. I love the recordings and they present a very different view of his music since Stravinsky is actually conducting the works. For anyone wanted the composer's view, this is a great set to buy.
