Notes and Editorial Reviews

Boulez brought both linear clarity and full-throated orchestral dynamism to Stravinsky's original 1911 Petrushka, where [Paul] Jacobs's incisive piano work prominently figures.

-- Jed Distler, Gramophone [12/2011]

-------

There is a controlled intensity about Boulez's 1971 New York performance of Petrushka... In The Rite of Spring...Boulez is less lyrical than the composer but compensates with relentless rhythmic urgency. The massive vividness of sound matches the monolithic quality of the interpretation.
