Description
Stravinsky - The Firebird - Jeu De Cartes - Abbado on 180g Import LP 

Italian conductor Claudio Abbado has amassed a discography for Deutsche Grammophon that includes the entire symphonic works of Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Ravel and more than 20 complete opera recordings. Here he conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Stravinsky's Firebird and Jeu De Cartes. 180g vinyl pressing from Clearaudio.

"With the second of the ballet's three deals he hits exactly the right Stravinskian gait and maintains it, the kind of tempo that is quick enough to avoid sentimentality but slow enough to allow every phrase to be crisply articulated, not slurred. To my mind the music, by turns witty and coolly lyrical, comes to life as a result. I have no hesitation in recommending this version of Jeu de cartes to all admirers of Stravinsky's ballet scores and not just because it is now the only one in the catalogue...The London Symphony Orchestra lavishes some really first-rate playing on it. - Gramophone/1975

Musicians:
- Stravinsky (composer)
- Claudio Abbado (conductor)
- London Symphony Orchestra
