“Few conductors have invigorated repertoires with the verve that Pierre Boulez has brought to his interpretations of Stravinsky . . . Bristling with energetic innovation.” — The Independent

Collected across 6 discs, Pierre Boulez and the world’s leading orchestras team up to perform the music of Igor Stravinsky. Known best for his head-turning ballet music in the early 1900s, Stravinsky’s output can be divided into three style periods: Russian, neoclassical and serial. The recordings here represent a significant portion of Stravinsky’s Russian output, as well as selections from his serial works.
