I did a transfer of the 1927 Firebird that sounds a lot better than the youtube one.... Feel free to download and enjoy.

Great thanks!

Did you happen to do the 1928 Petrouchka that guy has posted as well?:

No, but I did the 1940 Rite of Spring. I can upload that if you're interested.

That is really interesting. Thanks a lot for sharing it.

 

I found that the so called major performances, 1927 Firebird is under Stokowski.

This is the one that you posted? 

Cheers

No this one is an early electrical recording conducted by Stravinsky himself in France. Stokowski's was recorded acoustically in 1924.

Two very interesting Boulez recordings:

 

 

 

Maybe even more than just "interesting".

I've been waiting for this...

I'm posting this for the Piano quartet recording.

Not that the concerto recording is bad or anything but the Quintet recording is exceptional IMO.

 

Now on to listen to Bigshot's Rite transcription :smile:.

I kind of feel like I dismissed the concerto recording here.

It's quite superior to "not bad".

Very much so in fact.

It has been awhile since I posted in this thread, save for the unfortunately late Maestro Abbado.

 

Today something different - not a recording made ages and generations ago, scrutinized and reviewed ad nuseaum - and hailed as best in span of the recording history.

See the youth heralding next generation(s) of classical musicians:
