Die neue Doppel-CD des Sinfonieorchesters Basel setzt die Einspielung der großen Ballette von Igor Strawinsky fort. Auf der zweiten von insgesamt drei Ausgaben wurde nach Le Sacre du printemps auch L’Oiseau de feu aufgenommen.

The 2 CD set of Strawinsky’s Ballet contains “L’Oiseau de feu” 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.
