Description
Released to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Rite of Spring's premiere, this set documents Stravinsky conducting both that iconic work and the popular Firebird on several occasions. CD 1 features the Columbia Symphony performing The Rite in 1960 and The Firebird in 1967, while CD 2 captures the New York Philharmonic in the same sequence, recorded in 1940 and 1946.

"He was the son of one of the leading singers of the Imperial Opera in St. Petersburg, Rus sia, which provided him with entrée to the world of music at the highest level. He even met Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. His later ballet 'Le Baiser de la fée' (The Fairy's Kiss) is his affectionate tribute to Tchaikovsky. But for 'The Rite of Spring' Stravinsky drew upon a primal stimulus unrelated to the artistic world in which he lived. He later told his friend and musical colleague Robert Craft, 'The violent Russian spring that seemed to begin in an hour and was like the whole earth cracking—that was the most wonderful event of every year of my childhood.'"—Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
