Customer Reviews

Both fantastic recordings of fantastic works

I bought this for Les Noces, but I was blown away by Oedipus Rex as well. In both works the chorus' and soloists' diction and expression is top notch, and the respective orchestras do a wonderful job of blending perfectly with the choirs. This recording of Les Noces is the best available.

Stravinsky: Oedipus Rex, Les Noces, Craft Vol.1

Oedipus Rex, based on Sophocles’ tragedy, is an established twentieth-century classic. Employing a speaker, male chorus and orchestra, it represents Stravinsky’s 1920s neo-classicism at its peak. Les Noces, an amalgam of ballet and dance cantata in four scenes for solo voices, chorus, four pianos and seventeen percussion instruments, depicts a Russian peasant wedding. One of only two theatrical works by Stravinsky to combine music with a text in his mother tongue, Les Noces is also his most Russian work, in which ritual, symbol and meaning on every level are part of his direct cultural heredity. --Source: Naxos.com
