Acclaim for Stravinsky: Firebird

"... This new recording under Pletnev reports a trim, deft, delicately phrased performance, ... frequently passionate . ... What we do have is cogently expressed, very well played ... and superbly recorded. "

Gramophone Magazine (January 1997)

What They’re Saying

"Like everything else about how Pletnev runs this orchestra, he takes nothing for granted... And also like everything else about this remarkable organization, he makes it seem not just new but newly worthwhile."
