Notes & Reviews:

The relatively short artistic collaboration between Igor Stravinsky and Serge Diaghilev's Ballet Russes resulted in works that remained consistently popular with audiences the world over for nearly a hundred years. This new 3 CD set of live orchestral recordings by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales – made in their home venue of BBC Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff – captures Stravinsky's three great ballet scores (The Firebird, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring) as well as works by fellow Ballet Russes composers Poulenc (Les Biches) and Liadov (Baba-Yaga, The Enchanted Lake and Kikimora).
