Description
While composing The Rite of Spring's ballet score for Sergei Diaghilev, Igor Stravinsky paused to write Petrushka, the story of a puppet suddenly brought to life. Nijinsky danced the title role, and it remains one of the 20th century's greatest ballets. With music drawn from Stravinsky's opera Le rossignol, Song of the Nightingale is a brilliantly orchestrated symphonic poem, richly evoking Chinese music and the allure of the Orient. Underpinned by harp, piano, and celesta, a solo violin portrays the nightingale's lyrical song.

"For this 1988 performance, recorded in stunning detail by producer Adam Stern and engineer John Eargle, Delos Records first used the Colossus digital encoding system, ensuring greater clarity of detail, discrete quadrophonic capability, and superior imaging of orchestral timbres and textures. In a score featuring quadruple woodwind, cornets, two trumpets and a pair of harps in additional to a substantial string section, there is no blurring of details."Audio Video Club of Atlanta
