Pierre Boulez - Boulez Conducts Stravinsky

This 6-CD set gathers together for the first time all of Pierre Boulez's Stravinsky recordings on Deutsche Grammophon. It includes the three great "Russian" ballets: Firebird, Petrushka, and the Rite of Spring - with two of the world's greatest orchestras, Chicago and Cleveland, as well as a "symphonies" disc recorded with the Berlin Philharmonic. Two discs of solo, chamber, and vocal works, featuring the virtuoso Ensemble InterContemporain (founded by Boulez) complete the set.
