Recorded in 1997 with the London Symphony, this production of Stravinsky’s The Rake's Progress brings together conductor John Eliot Gardiner and leading vocal stars of our time – Bryn Terfel, Ian Bostridge, and Anne Sofie von Otter - for a gripping and memorable performance.

“Gardiner manages the composer's angles and strange rhythms superbly… leading a fleet, ironic performance of this tough work while underlining the score's sweetnesses as well. It doesn't hurt that he has the finest cast available….This set is now at the top of the pack; if you've been wondering about this opera and were wondering when and where to get your feet wet, go no further.” - Amazon.com
