ROH Recommended Recording

From pagan savagery to refined Classical elegance via a masterpiece of oblique ritual, these new recordings trace Stravinsky's eventful musical journey of creative curiosity and unquenchable originality. Sir Simon Rattle has long been acclaimed as a conductor of vivid insights in this music, and the Berliner Philharmoniker's virtuosity makes this a disc of aptly balletic power and poetry.
