Järvi and his ever supportive NHK Symphony players deliver a hugely powerful and unsettling performance of frightening rhythmic intensity that is spell binding and unnerving in equal measure, the maestro intent on revealing the profound pagan rituals of the ballet.

Recorded at Suntory Hall on 20/21 February 2019 by the legendary Japanese engineer, Tomoyoshi Ezaki - of Octavia/Exton HR fame - the recording is a master class of the recording art with a thoroughly convincing soundstage both laterally and in depth and inner detail and dynamics to die for. Almost faultless and thrilling beyond measure. (OK playing the curmudgeon, there were a couple of occasions when first trumpet and first trombone appeared to be sitting in the same chair!)

The accompanying early works are treated no less savagely in a 65 minute programme that leaves the listener stunned, bewildered and thoroughly discombobulated! No doubt the conductor would say "Job well done!"

Ecstatically recommended with a single reservation, this is a stereo only recording as there is no mention of mch on the packaging. On the other hand if your stereo system is good enough you will sense a glimpse of audio heaven.
