"Only last year, Yakov Kreizberg had been appointed artistic director of the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra. This splendid Stravinsky album is witness to all he had begun to do in partnership with the ensemble before his premature death in March... his album is a worthy memorial to a fine artist". Gramophone Recording of the Month, July 2011

“apart from well-judged tempos [in 'Rite'], there is some vivid detailing and a symphonic approach to the score's two parts that ensures a sense of growth and resolution...Pulcinella is performed with lucidity and affection...this account is nicely tart at times, with the spirit of the Baroque, and its occasional solemnity, well captured...The Firebird is given a rather luxurious account, with quite a lot of dramatic tension generated.” International Record Review, July/August 2011
