Notes & Reviews:

"A matter of weeks after the reissue of Leonard Bernstein's blisteringly committed 1961 recording of Milhaud's ritualistic quasi-operatic "happening" Les Choephores comes this rival offering from 1957, with the greatly underrated Igor Markevitch at the helm. It is difficult to choose...If anything, however, Markevitch has an even tighter grip upon the score, punching out its bloodthirsty, savage incantations..." ***** -Blain, Classic CD
