"The Baltimore Symphony offers a percolating Firebird. If you love this piece you will love this recording. The orchestra careens freely from theme to theme interrupted only by the occasional brass outburst. Even more thrilling than the Firebird is Petruska; a hybrid between the romantic orchestration of the Firebird and the guttural rhythms of Rite of Spring. Telarc's engineering allows for perfect clarity of all the elements of the orchestra. More layers become apparent on each successive listening, a testament to the wonderous complexity of Stravinsky's music."
