Editorial Reviews

This 4 CD set celebrates the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Stravinskys ballet The Rite of Spring in Paris on 29 May 1913. It is widely regarded as the most significant event in 20th century classical music and the shock of this groundbreaking score can still be felt today.

Included in this outstanding collection are six of the greatest recordings ever made of the work from the catalogues of Decca, Deutsche Grammophon and Philips.

In addition to digital recordings by Antal Dorati, Riccardo Chailly, Pierre Boulez, Valery Gergiev and Esa-Pekka Salonen, is a recording from 1956 by Pierre Monteux, the conductor of the premiere on that fateful night in 1913.

Also included on the fourth CD is Jon Tolanskys illuminating audio documentary that includes the first ever issue of first hand, eye-witness recollections of the legendary premiere, and specially recorded comments on the works revolutionary power from international conductors, choreographers and dancers.

Format: Audio CD
To commemorate the 100th birthday of a very difficult child, Decca has compiled 38 recordings in a 20-CD box. a listening challenge which numbs the mind. Comparing them would be the musical equivalent of tasting 38 brands of hot sauce spread on sandpaper. Le sacre, if taken in the right spirit, is still fiery and abrasive. As a mini-survey, you can buy this 4-CD set instead, which contains six performances, as follows:

1956

Paris Conservatoire Orchestra, Pierre Monteux

1981

Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Antal Dorati

1985

The Cleveland Orchestra, Riccardo Chailly

1991

The Cleveland Orchestra, Pierre Boulez

1999

Kirov Orchestra, St Petersburg, Valery Gergiev

2006

Los Angeles Philharmonic, Esa-Pekka Salonen

The Monteux recording is included because he presided over the raucous premiere on May 29, 1913, one of those rare events that changed Western civilization, not simply musical culture. It's forgivable that Decca didn't have access to Monteux's more vigorous version with the Boston Sym. on RCA, a rival label. The present one is thinly recorded, with patchy playing and lapses of attention from the podium. The Boulez/Clevalnd reading doesn't stand comparison with his earlier one for Sony. The Chailly is notable mainly for its good sound and the Clevelanders' virtuosity. So half the set isn't impressive.

Better is Dorati's elegant reading, which could be called balletic in that it's unusually lacking in brutality. Don't expect tension or virtuosity, however. The Gergiev was a blockbuster when first released and stands out for intensity and, as the conductor puts it, danger.
