Stravinsky, Igor – “Essential Igor Stravinsky, The” – [Sony Classical]

humana   2/12/2015   A Library, CD

stravinsky

This 2-CD magnum opus is a fitting musical portrait of the works of Stravinsky, the Russian composer and conductor whose life and works influenced many musicians, including the guitarist of Phish who added to the excellent liner notes contained within this release. The Russian expatriate thought outside the box and exercised a lot of musical freedom, which is reflected in these compositions, which range from pieces requiring large orchestral backing to smaller arrangements to ragtime to a simple musical setting of “The Owl and the Pussycat” for his wife. Everyone can find something on here to please. Dip in and taste a piece of classical music history.
