Notes & Reviews:

"Gergiev's 'Firebird' is certainly a startling performance. All manner of things probably contribute here to the impression of distinctive but completely natural pacing, timing, voicing and shading, among them Gergiev's experience in the music of Stravinsky's [forbearers]...-JS, Gramophone. "This is a 'Firebird' for the Ages. A Terrific performance, and, with a wonderfully expansive and burnished recording...this disc is an early candidate for my 1999 Want List." -Johnson, Fanfare
