  • About This Album

    The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

    The Guardian, in its guide to the definitive recordings of classical works, calls the Pokrovsky Ensemble's pairing of Stravinsky's famous 1923 cantata about a peasant wedding "with powerful performances of a group of Russian folk songs related to the poems Stravinsky used ... a fascinating exercise in historical musicology."
