In Oedipus, the sensitivity of the Philharmonia players is very much in evidence, as is the excellent work of the men of Simon Joly’s chorus.

STRAVINSKY: Oedipus Rex; Les Noces. Robert Craft has begun an ambitious project of recording Stravinsky’s oeuvre with two of the best dramatic works, Oedipus Rex - a sort of melodrama in a fever - and Les Noces (The Wedding), which simply defies any generic classification. The two make an ideal pairing, Rex as high drama told at a breakneck crawl, Noces as a kind of musical Polaroid camera that churns through frozen snapshots with a mind numbing velocity.

Craft Naxos . 57499  . Robert Craft was Stravinsky's longtime assistant, a prime force in motivating the great master to adopt 12-tone composition late in his then-declining career. That change in style was a mistake, I'm convinced, but that's another issue.
