Stravinsky: The Firebird – BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Thierry Fischer

The music commissioned by Sergey Diaghilev for his Ballets russes has generated some of the most inventive and popular orchestral works of the twentieth century.

Led by Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer, the performances recorded here capture the excitement and vibrancy of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales live in concert: the first recording made in their new home of BBC Hoddinott Hall, Wales. This is the first release in a series of three, with future repertoire including The Rite of Spring and Petrushka.

Live performance of The Firebird:

‘It was, in short, one of the finest performances I have heard the BBC National Orchestra of Wales give in recent years: both precise and evocative, exceptionally transparent in texture where it needed to be, rich and full elsewhere, this was a magical reading of a remarkable score.’

www.musicweb-international.com

"... the orchestra plays spectacularly, conveying a genuine feel for the mystery, exoticism, and lush tones of Stravinsky’s ballet score. ...Fischer presents it with a freshness that makes one stop and pay attention."
