Robert Craft always conducts splendid late Stravinsky, or selects the best players to do the chamber works full justice, and so it proves here. Granted, the program is a bit of a mish-mash, but that’s only to be expected given the composer and the length of each work. In the Duo, Frautschi and Denk play with just the right crispness and clarity, and you’ll search in vain for a better version of Abraham and Isaac (not that there are all that many). In short, if you’ve been collecting this series, which Naxos hopefully will box up complete someday, then you’ll want to add this disc to your library as well.
