Review by Lee E.
(3 out of 5 stars)
"A 2-CD set, this is vol. X in the laudable Stravinsky the Composer series cond. by Stravinsky's long-time collaborator R. Craft. CD 1 pairs Stravinsky's 1947 revision of his 1911 burlesque ballet Petroushka (the complete 4-part ballet, not the suite drawn from it) with the 1914 version of The Nightingale, his opera (in Russian, based on a tale by Hans C. Andersen) begun 1908, set aside 1909, finished 1913-14, rev. 1962. In 1917, Stravinsky wrote The Song of the Nightingale, a tone poem based on and much better known than the opera. This CD contains the complete opera (NOT the tone poem); the booklet has the libretto in Russian and English only. CD 2 is a bonus CD of excerpts from other CD's in the series. The works on CD 2 are nowhere listed with the CD itself: see above for Amazon.com's listing of these works."
