Notes & Reviews:

Following successes with The Firebird (Naxos 8571221) and Petrushka (Naxos 8571222), Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring was the most ambitious and controversial result of his collaboration with Sergey Dyagilev's Ballet russes, the première performance in 1913 leading to a riot in the theatre. The Rite of Spring portrays atmospheric and dramatic pagan rituals which culminate in a sacrificial dance, during which the Chosen One dances herself to death. The Dumbarton Oaks concerto represents Stravinskys later neoclassical style, referring to Bach in its compact scale and transparency of language.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Schwarz creates contrast with fast speeds in 'Glorification' and 'Danse Sacrale'. It is well done, with deft, sometimes elegant playing.
