Stravinsky: Le Rossignol

“Well-nuanced, dramatic and inspired performances of less popular works by Stravinsky”

Pizzicato, Remy Franck, August 2017

“Stravinsky’s long-gestated fairy-tale mini opera, given captivatingly here by Saraste’s Cologne team, makes a virtue of stylistic contrast — sensual exoticism à la Firebird for the nightingale, post-Rite stridency for the artifice of the Chinese court. The soprano Mojca Erdmann sings radiantly.”
