Notes & Reviews:

Stravinsky's Petrushka is a much-loved virtuoso classic of the orchestral repertoire, and receives a scintillating reading here in this live recording by Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony. But what makes the disc extra special is the addition of Debussy's little-known and rarely recorded children's ballet, Le bote joujoux, "The Toy Box," which Morlot brings lovingly to life. A celebration of children's play captured vividly in works by two of the 20th century's greatest composers!
