Notes & Reviews:

Written for huge orchestra, this elemental ballet, with its vaulting, violent energy and asymmetrical rhythms almost from beginning to end has become one of the iconic landmarks of 20th century music. "May whoever listens to this music never experience the insult to which it was subjected and of which I was the witness in the Theatre des Champs-Elysees, Paris, Spring 1913." - Igor Stravinsky on the premiere of his 'Rite of Spring'

Classical Candor
I found [Craft's] reading of The Rite of Spring more to my liking... he seems positively energized... I enjoyed the disc's coupling of Stravinsky's oft-neglected, complete one-act opera The Nightingale... it's beautifully rendered by all concerned.
