Revolutionary in its time, ‘The Firebird’ is a story in musical textures and dynamics perfectly suited to the Mercury technique and now mastered at half-speed by Abbey Road. Dorati and the LSO present each nuance of Stravinsky’s score in perfect scale and balance and are heard here in incredible detail and fidelity.
