Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Both composers benefit from Fischer's trademark refinement. His Petrushka, notably beautiful, is graciously touching rather than violent or eruptive, the clean-textured, superbly detailed playing from the BBC National Orchestra Wales reminds us just how startlingly original Stravinsky's sonorities." -- The Guardian

Petrushka follows 2009’s release of Stravinsky’s Firebird and is the second in a three?part series of works from Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes, performed by BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Thierry Fischer. These recordings encapsulate the vivacity and passion of Stravinsky’s tale of three life?sized puppets, seemingly brought to life.

The disc also features three works by fellow
Read more Russian and Ballet Russes composer Anatoly Liadov: dark and dramatic tone?poems on Slavic witches and demons in Babayaga and Kikimora, and a tranquil and fairytale?like portrait of the Russian countryside in The Enchanted Lake.

"This fresh sounding live recording from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Thierry Fischer, the first made in the BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff, certainly has a sense of occasion about it, with the audience erupting as the finale chorale reaches its exultant conclusion." -- BBC Music Magazine
