Stravinsky:

The Rite of Spring

Petrushka - suite

The Firebird Suite


Tremendously virtuosic performances from Stravinsky’s most famous ballet scores – The Firebird, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring – from conductor Ormandy and his "Fabulous Philadelphians".

“Phenomenally played Stravinsky from one of the great conductor-orchestra combinations of the 20th century. The limited mid-1950s mono sound means that this is probably for collectors only.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2013 ****

The Rite of Spring

for piano four hands


Duo Miho & Masumi Hio (piano - 4 hands)

Celebrating the centenary of the radical sounds of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, performed in Stravinsky’s own piano four hands scoring, allowing the listener to come closer to the sonorities that Stravinsky himself will first have experienced as he composed, alongside the Hindemith Sonata for Piano Four Hands and Ravel’s Rhapsodie espagnole.

Miho and Masumi Hio were solo piano pupils of Elisabeth Vaeth-Schadler and Martyn van den Hoek at the Carinthia State Music Conservatory (Kärntner Landeskonservatorium) and the Vienna Conservatory (Konservatorium Wien). After earning their diplomas as soloists with distinction, they married in 2005, forming a piano duo and have performed together ever since.

Stravinsky:

The Rite of Spring


Naive continues its partnership with the Orchestra of the Paris Opera and its leader Philippe Jordan [currently counducting the Ring Cycle in Paris].

Music Director of the Opéra National de Paris and appointed Musical Director the Vienna Symphony Orchestra from the season 2014-15, Philippe Jordan, at age 38, is already recognised as one of the most talented and exciting conductors of his generation.

Here are three monuments that together furthered the history of music and the arts, including that of the Paris Opera, in the 20th century.

“An especially stunning performance of Bolero” BBC Music Magazine, August 2013 ****

“Jordan is clearly interested in tracing the linkages and the lineage; how three trailblazing minds listened and learnt from each other. He favours upbeat, pacy tempi throughout the disc...hyperactive, scorched-earth rumblings from the start. The Orchestre de l'Opera National de Paris is more than game for this unusually deep workout.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2013

“Jordan luxuriates in this miraculous miniature masterpiece [Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune], offering a languorous reading of the great beauty.” International Record Review, July/August 2013

Stravinsky:

The Firebird

Petrushka

The Rite of Spring

Apollon musagète

Scherzo Fantastique, Op. 3


This collection brings together four great ballets by Stravinsky – The Firebird, Petrushka, The Rite of Spring and Apollon musagète, in definitive performances, stunningly recorded, by Antal Dorati and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

Also included is the early orchestral work Scherzo fantastique, which was first performed as a ballet by the New York City Ballet in 1972 with choreography by Jerome Robbins.

Stravinsky first made a name for himself with his colourful score for the ballet The Firebird, influenced by his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov, but already giving an indication of things to come. His next ballet, Petrushka, showed significant development, but hardly prepared audiences for the premiere of The Rite of Spring in Paris on 29 May 1913, which caused a riot. It was the most significant event in 20th century classical music and the shock of this revolutionary score can still be felt today.

Stravinsky: Le sacre du printemps & Bartók: Sonata for two Pianos and Percussion

Stravinsky: Le sacre du printemps & Bartók: Sonata for two Pianos and Percussion


Bartók:

Sonata for Two Pianos & Percussion, BB 115, Sz. 110

with Dominic Oelze, Torsten Schönfeld (percussion)

Stravinsky:

The Rite of Spring

arranged for two pianos


Frank-Immo Zichner & Frank Gutschmidt (pianos)

This CD pairs two major works of the 20th century. Stravinsky’s groundbreaking 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.
