Notes & Reviews:

This is a unique collection of mostly short works that Stravinsky re-worked in different arrangements to suit the occasion. Pastorale, transcribed here for a quartet of oboe, clarinet, English horn, and bassoon, is one of Stravinsky's most popular pieces, as well as his own favourite among his pre-Firebird creations. The Soldier's Tale, scored for only 7 players, is based on a Russian folk-tale of the soldier who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for a violin. Stravinsky's comic masterpiece, Renard, also based on a Russian folk-tale, is heard here in an amended version of his own English translation. Scherzo a la Russe is the original, scored for the Paul Whiteman band of six saxophones, eight strings, harp, piano, assorted brass, woodwinds, and percussion.
