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.

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.

Humphrey Burton interviews Leonard Bernstein (BONUS)

LONDON, NOVEMBER 1966


‘Luckily for all of us, it wasn’t enough for Leonard Bernstein to compose music and conduct orchestras. He felt equally compelled to talk about music – to try and explain what made it tick, what made it good, and what made it affect us in all the ways that music does. The other piece of good luck was that Leonard Bernstein and television came along at the same time. They were born for each other.’ (Jamie Bernstein)

The films on this DVD are taken from the ‘Symphonic Twilight’ series of TV programmes made in the mid-Sixties that were the brainchild of Humphrey Burton, then the newly appointed Head of Music and Arts Programmes for the BBC.

In his booklet notes for this DVD, Burton reveals himself to have been instrumental in bringing Bernstein the conductor to the wider British public, who knew him foremost as the composer of West Side Story. In 1965 Burton persuaded Bernstein to conduct the LSO at the Royal Albert Hall and the resulting Mahler 8 was a spectacular occasion, broadcast to the nation.

The following year, they put together these programmes, filmed specifically for the new television audience. The works Bernstein chose to record are twentieth-century orchestral masterpieces, for which he is known to be a champion. His recordings of Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony for CBS Records and Deutsche Grammophon were acclaimed by critics worldwide, and his interpretation of The Rite of Spring in 1959 elicited an enthusiastic ‘Wow!’ from Stravinsky himself! They are accompanied on this DVD by an in-depth interview, given here as a bonus and subtitled in French and German.

“Thrilling performances from 1966. The Rite generates tremendous tension, while the Sibelius is liked for drama and lyricism. No wonder Bernstein starts as Jekyll and finishes looking like Hyde.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2012 ****
