A labyrinth of Stravinsky recordings

Stravinsky gets many votes as greatest classical composer of the 20th century. He also spent a lifetime conducting his music. Thanks to Columbia Records, a collection of 22 compact discs contains just about everything Stravinsky recorded. Now that collection is available at bargain prices. The pleasures of this set are plentiful, but its scope is somewhat daunting. I will explore the labyrinth.
