Notes & Reviews:

"Parker has just the right deft touch and insouciance to show this most entertaining of [Stravinsky's] works in its best light, especially the last movement, redolent of some vaudeville routine." -Gramophone Magazine

"The Stravinsky...is the most satisfying performance here, punchy, expressive and vital, full of wit, fantasy and the spirit of the dance. Parker finds much character in the music and brings it off with style, with the LSO and Francis pointing and complementing to great effect." -International Record Review, December 2010
