Stravinsky: Le sacre du printemps, Bartok: Sonata for two Pianos and Percussion

Description

This CD pairs two major works of the 20th century. Stravinsky's ground-breaking ballet score Le Sacre du Printemps appears in the composer's own arrangement for two pianos, whilst the other work on the disc is Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. The keyboard players are Frank-Immo Zichner and Frank Gutschmidt, and the percussionists in the Bartok piece are Dominic Oelze and Torsten Schönfeld. While the full score of Stravinsky's ground-breaking 1912 ballet Le Sacre du Printemps experiments with novel playing techniques and highly innovative orchestration, in the composer's own arrangement for two pianos, recorded here, it is the rhythmical aspects of the music that are prominent. The Hungarian composer Béla Bartók became acquainted with "Le Sacre" through this version in the 1920s, and it greatly influenced his composing technique. Although Stravinsky moved away from folk music after his Russian period, it played an important part in Bartók's music throughout his life. The Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion incorporates a synthesis of the stylistic developments of his own time and folk music. Personnel: Frank-Immo Zichner, Frank Gutschmidt (pianos), Dominic Oelze, Torsten Schönfeld (percussion)
