Out of stock

This box holds all three of Strawinsky’s Ballets played by Sinfonieorchester Basel and conducted by Dennis Russell Davies in addition to the piano version for four hands played by Maki Namekawa and Dennis Russell Davies.

The conductor and pianist Dennis Russell Davies arranged L’Oiseau de feu, which was transcribed by Strawinsky for two hands only, for four hands especially for this recording. The basis for this arrangement by Davies is the original version by Strawinsky and sheds a new light on the orchestral version as well as the compositional aspect of the works.
