Notes & Reviews:
International Record Review, March 2015
This beautifully documented and generally fascinating release presents not one but two performances of The Rite of Spring... Zinman emphasizes subtleties of orchestral colour and takes great care to evoke atmosphere rather than relying on brute force... these enthralling new discs give us something different. They deserve to be listened to and studied with the closest attention.
Sunday Times, 1st February 2015
The performances are in the Monteux tradition: not the most virtuosic, but theatrically paced and transparent, captured in brilliant sound.
The Guardian, 28th January 2015
Zinman doesn't attempt to recreate [the] original sound world; his performances are concerned with textual and performance details. What he's produced is in a sense a variorum edition, which compares Stravinsky's first and last thoughts on his most celebrated work...Taken together...they offer a fascinating perspective on the greatest of all icons of musical modernism.
