5.0 out of 5 stars magnificent new recordings, 14 Oct. 2016
these outstanding recordings made in America are extraordinary,Stravinskys Firebird,hauntingly beautiful,the brilliant Bartok third piano concerto played superbly by Yefim Bronfman,faultless,with Prokovievs Romeo and Juliet complimenting and Miraculous Mandarin.The London Symphony orchestras playing is glorious and under the baton of Valery Gergiev doesnt get any better !
