Notes and Editorial Reviews

The second volume in andante's series devoted to Igor Stravinsky as both composer and performer features first recordings of his popular neo-classical works. The three-CD set includes 1930s performances of the "Symphony of Psalms," the Violin Concerto (with Samuel Dushkin), the Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra (with Stravinsky at the keyboard) and the "Dumbarton Oaks" concerto, as well as various violin/piano duos with Stravinsky and Dushkin from their tour repertoire. The album's highlight, perhaps, is a 1950 performance of the melodious ballet "Apollon musagète." For state-of-the-art sonic impact, vintage 78s were transferred and 24-bit digitally remastered using the CAP 440 technique. The 112-page, three-language book includes classic Read more photos of the composer and his circle, in addition to an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tim Page, an exceptional essay by the late critic/broadcaster Michael Oliver ("Neo-Classical Stravinsky") and detailed artist biographies from "The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians."
