The recordings are old (1950/60s studio recordings?), but perfectly OK quality (get something more recent if you want a top quality modern recording). This is an "historic" recording, if only because Ernest Ansermet was a friend of Stravinsky and conducted quite a few of his premieres in the interwar period when Stravinsky was living in France. Indeed, his last recording was of Stravinsky's Firebird suite with the Philharmonia in London.

Pulcinella is a delightful piece of neoclassical style, freely quoting from Pergolesi etc. However, Stravinsky is still very much present: the imaginative orchestration, the rhythm and so on. The song of the nightingale is an earlier piece, more along the lines of the Rites of Spring. At this price it is a real bargain.

Nice clear, bright recording and lively performances. A good addition to my Stravinsky collection, especially the Song of the Nightingale which I had not previously heard before.
