Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring, Nielsen: Symphony No. 5 - Paavo Järvi          (9 of 12 found this review helpful)
  Review by jdaniel@jps.net September 29, 2004

A very impressive Rite. Immediately impressive is Jarviís ear for sonority and rhythmic elan; not to mention his orchestraís incredible virtuosity.
