Notes & Reviews:

This specially priced two disc celebration of the music of Igor Stravinsky features historic stereo recordings made between 1970 to 1987, all remastered for SACD. Ranging from the opulence of The Firebird to the sparse neo-classic L'Histoire du Soldat suite, the repertoire on this set provides the listener with a fascinating survey of Stravinsky's music from the teens and twenties. Performers include the Tokyo String Quartet, the Boston Symphony Chamber Players and the Czech Philharmonic led by Christoph von Dohnányi.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The Soldier's Tale suite gets high-caliber treatment from the Boston Symphony Chamber Players in a 1980 concert performance recorded in very fine sound. A crisp, vital performance with seamlessly integrated ensemble work.
