Now part of the popular hmGold series, this classic recording from the harmonia mundi archives is available again at mid-price. Les Noces is rich with the flavors and rhythms of the composer's Russian folk heritage. Stravinsky arranged the libretto himself using Russian wedding lyrics taken from an anthology of songs collected by Russian anthropologist and folklorist P.V. Kireevsky. A tribute to Stravinsky at his finest, this recording features the combined talents of the RIAS Kammerchor and MusikFabrik under the baton of Daniel Reuss.
