Stravinsky: Complete music for piano & orchestra
A new album from the Gramophone Award-winning team of Steven Osborne, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Ilan Volkov. Here they present Stravinsky’s complete music for piano and orchestra as a rare complete set, plus the Concerto in D for string orchestra. The taut rhythmic brilliance of this music is perfectly suited to the particular artistry of these performers. Volkov’s mastery of Stravinsky’s neo-classical idiom is clear from the ecstatic critical response to his recordings of many of the composer’s orchestral works.

Stravinsky in Moscow
Works included are “Petruschka” ballet suite, Ode and Orpheus ballet. These are live recordings from performances in the Moscow Conservatory in 1962 when Stravinsky returned to Russia at the age of 80 and 48 years since he had last been in his native country. It was a genuine feast for Russian listeners.
“…there remains a genuine freshness and danger in the music-making of Soviet forces tackling the oeuvre for the first time. Fireworks is taken at a cracking pace. Likewise the Petrushka highlights… How fascinating to hear the Moscow Philharmonic employing the strident timbres we associate with Shostakovich in the music of his pseudo-Occidental rival...” Gramophone Magazine, January 2010
