Notes & Reviews:

Two essential Stravinsky ballets, both milestones of twentieth century music, given a bold, unflinching treatment by Frühbeck de Burgos and the LSO!

"Frühbeck de Burgos's reading is extremely brilliant, extremely beautiful, sometimes a touch more deftly played than Simon Rattle's (Frühbeck's tempos are often faster, seldom exaggeratedly so; they are the 'conventional' tempos, you might say)... the rhythmic and harmonic innovations of (Petrushka) admirably distilled by Frühbeck in a reading of vivid drama and pungent characterization" -Gramophone
