The Eloquence/Ansermet journey continues with a much-anticipated and unique set: the early Stravinsky/Ansermet Decca discography with recordings made in the decade from 1946-1955, with, as a bonus, the hitherto unissued-on-CD recording of the Divertimento from The Fairy`s Kiss, recorded in 1962. The detailed booklet notes by Richard Kaplan are supplemented with full-page reproductions of many of the original LP covers in both their original form and reissued LP formats. All the recordings appear internationally on Decca CD for the first time.
