This album of works by Stravinsky contains the world premiere recording of Funeral Song
, a work composed as a memorial to his teacher, Rimsky-Korsakov. The score, however,
disappeared soon after its singular performance, only to resurface over 100 years later at
the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Beyond the novelty of recording a long-lost work by a
beloved composer, Funeral Song shimmers and holds its own alongside a collection
of Stravinsky staples.
