Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

BBC Music Magazine
The COE's leader Alexander Janiczek directs these readingsà In Stravinsky's ballet blanc for string orchestra, Apollonà he steers a middle way between the suave smoothness of the Karajan approach and the edgy haste Stravinsky's own later readings tended to take on. Tempos are moderate, but there is no lack of spring to the rhythms while the opening of the 'Pas de Deux' is mesmerising in its translucent poise. The Suite from the Baroque make-over Pulcinella (1920) is an altogether livelier, gutsier affair as delivered here, with a terrific rhythmic snap to the finale.

Gramophone Magazine
Stylish, lyrical readings of two of Stravinsky's ballets from the '20s. àwhat comes over in these new recordings by the justly lauded Chamber Orchestra of Europe is the lyricism of Apollo. àthis impeccable and stylish performance radiates melodic appeal devoid of sentimentality.

The Guardian
Rather than use a conductor, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe is directed by its leader, Alexander Janiczek. It's an approach that works well with the Pulcinella Suite, but is less successful when it comes to Apollon MusagFte.
