“Ozawa’s hell-for-leather élan comes as close to as criminally graphic a representation of ritual murder in music as you are likely to hear.” — MusicWeb International (on Seiji Ozawa’s recording of Le sacre de printemps with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, 1968)

The legendary Stravinsky recordings of Seiji Ozawa and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra are brought back to life in this new pressing from RCA with the addition of Fritz Reiner’s reading of Stravinsky’s Divertimento from The Fairy’s Kiss, recorded in 1958.
