The Labeque sisters track down a «portrait of Mozart» in Poulenc’s much-loved Concerto for Two Pianos. Ravel’s fairy-tale Suite «Ma mere l’Oye», here in its orchestral version, is the perfect complement. Legendary in all senses of the word, Stravinsky’s ballet «Firebird», has lost none of its impact since its sensational premiere. Musical storytelling at its finest!
