5.0 out of 5 stars Treasures from the early LP era. 27 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
The Decca 1950 recording of Stravinsky's ballet Petrushka played by the Suisse Romande Orchestra under Ernest Ansermet was one of the first LPs to appear on the market and the reviewer, Lionel Salter, wrote in The Gramophone,

"This new recording of Stravinsky's masterpiece - which will become, I am sure, the first landmark in the history of LP - lights up the orchestral colours with unprecedented vividness and perspective and all the details of the score are wonderfully clear and excellently balanced."

Ansermet's second Mono Petrushka became a benchmark of LP quality, the standard by which all else was measured.

La Boutique Fantasque recording (recorded with the LSO in July 1950) also drew superlatives from the critics.

No doubt Ansermet was the ideal conductor for such recordings. He met Stravinsky in 1912, who recommended him to Serge Dhiaghilev. Ansermet became principal conductor of Dhiagilev's Ballet Russes from 1915 to 1923. In 1918 he formed the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in Geneva and was musical director of the orchestra for the next 49 years.. He died in February 1969.

5.0 out of 5 stars First-rate recording! 23 Aug 2008
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on
Format:Audio CD
For many people (I include myself) Ernest Ansermet has been regarded as painter of the music. His accuracy as conductor is overwhelming, he always gets to convey even the most indifferent listener to new lands of exciting musicality and Dionysian expression.

His performances of Stravinsky, for instance are among the best achievements ever made in the history of the disc. He got extract from the Suiise Romande a characteristic sound, combining wild audacious, excel phrasing, superb musicality with untamed vitality.

In this memorable recording we have once more a fabulous and radiant performance, without boating of cheap effects or fireworks poses.

Go for this album. It will reward you.
