The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra (founded 1972) is a classical music chamber orchestra based in New York City. They have won several Grammy Awards. It is known for its collaborative leadership style in which the musicians, not a conductor, interpret the score. Orpheus Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1972 by Julian Fifer and a group of young musicians.

This collection conveniently brings together many of Stravinsky's short pieces, which are occasionally found as filler on other discs or not at all. Count it as a considerable bonus that these often misplaced miniatures receive lively interpretations here, by one of the world's best chamber ensembles. These compositions are valuable for the insights they give of Stravinsky's varied stylistic developments. His neo-Classical period is well-represented.

The chamber-like sonorities and intricate interplay – surely the result of this being a conductor-less ensemble – are an endless delight. – Harriet Smith, Gramophone.
