    Aside from the excellent recommendations already made, I have another. Ozawa doesn't get a lot of credit outside of far East Asia, but his 1969 Petrushka, with the Boston Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas on piano, is excellent, and one of my favorite Stravinsky recordings.

    Ormandy/Philadelphia, 1964. It’s a well done Sony digital remastering of a sonically excellent stereo master tape. I also love the Monteux/Boston SO, 1959 Living Stereo recording, which was my first one. This is one of my favorite pieces of music so I’m paying close attention here with a plan to add a third recording to my collection.

    Yes, coupled with the ‘35 Firebird suite

    I have that '37 Petruska on an RCA disc with the '29 "Le Sacre"...

    I must check out the newer disc with '35 Firebird.....Great bassoon playing on Firebird - J. Walter Guetter - legendary player who died way too young [age 42] from cancer...Stokowski called him the "Heifetz of the bassoon"!!

    Not that I'm aware of. It's well out of print. I've got an LP rip of this one. I did have the original LP many years ago. I forgot to mention Jarvi in this recording. Its a wonderful disc.

    This looks like maybe a Japanese CD release, but it's unavailable: https://www.amazon.com/Stravinsky-Pe.../dp/B000063E8C

    That is if the listing is correct.

    It would have been one of those limited pressing jobs from Japan, of which some are not legit. Its never (AFAIK) han an official CD release over here. Surprising as it was Gramophone's (and many other critics and listeners') reference recording. Even Hurwitz loved it. If anyone wants a lossless LP rip....... A good one.....

    IIRC, I got my CD from Japan....along with the great RCA Levine/CSO Mahler Sym #3

    ^^^ I am starting to enjoy Ansermet in Stravinsky. He's far more lively than perhaps I would have given him credit for, and although I have read comments about the SRO not being the sharpest of orchestras, certainly cannot hear anything scrappy here.

    The sound on my 8CD Decca box of Ansermet/Stravinsky is a bit dry, though.....not bad for its age, mind.

    I've never heard it, tbh, but if it's like many other Ansermet recording it's bound to be lively and entertaining.

    Ozawa/Boston (originally released on RCA) is a wonderful performance of the 1947 version.
