Claudio Abbado conducts the London Symphony Orchestra for this audiophile recording of Stravinsky's The Firebird.

Stravinsky's genius for the ballet dominated his musical thinking throughout his life, for whatever the expressive outlet he chose, balletic habits of mind were quick to surface. Even the Symphony in three movements proceeds additively rather than organically: movement and the dance were the mainsprings of his imagination.
