Description

The premiere of Stravinsky's Le sacre du printemps is legendary. It caused a full-blown scandal in Paris in 1913 even though the highly informed public should have known what was coming: during the previous year the composer had participated in the premiere of the piano duo version of this epochal work. Even years later Claude Debussy wrote that the memory of this premiere was like "a beautiful nightmare." He supplied the second pair of hands during its performance, and from that time forth his admiration for his colleague, who was twenty years his junior, went over into boundless enthusiasm. This recording offers the version for 4 hands, coupled with the orchestral version as a direct comparison. Recorded in MDG's 3 dimensional 2+2+2 surround sound, this is a truly sonic experience for the ears!
