Overview

[Stravinsky's] performance can still teach a thing or two to most of its rivals: its implicit rather than applied expressiveness, its careful balance between vocal and instrumental forces...its use of crisp articulation rather than noise for emphasis, the grace that emerges from Stravinsky's insistence on very precise observation of his score-markings. The two orchestral symphonies are even better done, the dark or menacing undertones of both works brought out by punchy precision of rhythm and spare, balletic elegance of line rather than overt dramatization.
