Notes & Reviews:

"When performed this well The Fairy's Kiss is a dazzling conjuring trick; once you've worked out how it's done you'll have learned a lot about Stravinsky. Written in 1928, it's a homage to the then deeply unfashionable Tchaikovsky using no fewer than 17 of Tchaikovsky's own melodies. But some of the most gracious pages turn out to be pure Stravinsky...None of these works is often played; in such graceful and virtuoso readings as these...it's hard to understand why." -Oliver, Classic CD
