Stravinsky: Petrouchka — L'Oiseu de Feu album cover
Stravinsky: Petrouchka — L'Oiseu de Feu

L'Orchestre National de Lille , Jean-Claude Casadesus

Composed by:  Igor Stravinsky


An overeager barista must have slipped an extra shot of espresso into the coffee served to the French conductor Jean-Claude Casadesus on the morning of the 1986 recording session for this incendiary Stravinsky album. Despite his tachycardic tempos, Casadesus remains in complete command, animating these well-trodden ballet scores with exceptional dynamism and lucidity.
