Notes and Editorial Reviews

[This] collection will thrill those who respond to instrumental spotlighting, especially in The Rite of Spring, where the big drums have a joistshaking impact (try the 111" "Dance of the Earth" on disc I, track 23). Temirkanov's readings of Petrushka (credited as the '1919' version), the 1919 Firebird Suite, the Fairy's Kiss "Divertimento" and the Pulcinella Suite have lots of personality, though there are one or two rough edges to the playing.

-- Gramophone [7/1997]
