I figured I'd ask the advice of those who know, I have enough coasters around me as it is.

I've only heard a few different recordings of Stravinsky's works.  By far the best out of the ones I've heard is the following.  I highly recommend you get this because it's simply amazing:


1997 Grammy® Nominee
The Rite of Spring, The Firebird Suite andThe Song of the Nightingale have never sounded more magical or more dynamic!

In a difficult piece like Rite of Spring, I'll go with a first class orchestra and conductor over boutique recording quality every time. There are a hundred different versions out there and quite a few are flat out bad. To a listener who isn't familiar with the complex rhythms in Sacre, it may not be readily apparent.

Ofcourse, ofcourse "the Rite of Spring but there is a lot more to Stravinsky than this. (incidentally the best for me is Seiji Ozawa with CSO on Sony, and I have collected a lot of Rite's)


Try this as a very good low price overlook and with some of the best performances available

I also like the EMI set, but would recommend too the double (or even single!) that includes Rattle's CBSO _Firebird_.
