At last, this recording is available again. Originally released by Saga on LP in 1985 and then lost in the mist of time following the labels closure. Now digitally re-mastered from original analogue sources, it is available on CD for the first time. This release will be much sought after as there is no listed competition in the current Muze Classical Catalogue for The Rite of Spring. David & Richard are currently celebrating their 30th anniversary season as Britain’s foremost piano duo and continue to tour the world enthralling all who attend their many concerts.

“...the transcription restores a sense of danger to a work at risk of losing its explosiveness through overfamiliarity...the Rite remains the ultimate piano duet.” Sunday Times, 29th November 2009 ****

Booklet Notes:Tracklisting in English, French, German.

This first DVD release of Boulez' most famous interpretations is a must-have!

His ground breaking Debussy interpretations Nocturnes: Fêtes Jeux - Poème dansé and Images freed Debussy from cliché.

Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (1913) and Schoenberg's Accompaniment to a Cinematographic Scene (1930) confirmed Boulez as the authority on 20th century music.

A composer himself, Boulez conducts with precision and a deep understanding of the sound worlds of the composers: he "thinks music".

Includes film footage of Boulez' conducting Images and working on Fêtes Jeux.

"Pierre Boulez is arguably the most influential, and controversial, figure in the world of music today. Boulez is known as the young Turk of post-war avant-garde composition who has steadily transformed himself into one of the most authoritative interpreters of standard 19th and 20th-century music." The Guardian

“These concerts, spanning 30 years, show Boulez's consistency in achieving precision, colour and clarity. The Debussy and Schoenberg performances are classics, the Stravinsky too civilised.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2009 ****

Belli Piano Duo (Enrico and Olivia Belli)

Mythical Dances, combines two of the most important and virtuoso works for piano four-hands, in the recording debut of the Belli Piano Duo. In his second CD release for Wergo, Enrico Belli again juxtaposes the American composer George Crumb with music from one of the predecessors who influenced him most profoundly. Given that Makrokosmos IV was both conceived and written for piano duet, it makes sense to place it in the context of Igor Stravinsky's version for piano duet of his composition Le Sacre du printemps.The original version for piano duet heard here saw its 1912 Paris première when Stravinsky partnered no less a figure than Claude Debussy.

Stravinsky:

The Rite of Spring

Jeu de cartes


These ballet scores, written respectively in 1913 and 1937, have continued to sound fresh and new throughout the years and these are tremendously exciting performances from the USSR Symphony Orchestra and Evgeni Svetlanov. Recorded in 1966 and 1970 they were the first recordings made inside Russia of these pieces following the lifting of the ban on Stravinsky’s music.

“Stravinsky was not perhaps natural Svetlanov territory, the but conductor inspires some surprisingly lyrical playing in the slower sections of Rite, whilst Jeu de Cartes is projected with wit and considerable virtuosity.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2008 ****

Boston Symphony Orchestra


Pierre Monteux (1875-1964) was one of the greatest French conductors of the twentieth-century, his career extending to almost 70 years, a fine musicians admired throughout Europe and the United States. He first came to international pre-eminence when he conducted – as music director of Serge Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes – the world premiere of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring in Paris in May 1913. Within a few years, he was conducting regularly in the United States and, after the end of World War I, in Europe as well. In the USA, he was music director of the Boston Symphony and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras from 1919-24 and 1936-52 respectively, and in this unique collection of finely-restored broadcast performances of Russian music under his direction we can experience again the magic and virtuosity which the universally-loved maestro invariably brought to his performances. A fabulous record.
