About

For the first time, a recording based entirely on the composer’s autograph score - Stravinsky’s landmark work as it might have been heard on May 29, 1913. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the first performance of Igor Stravinsky’s landmark ballet ‘Le Sacre du Printemps’, David Zinman and the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich recorded two different versions of this milestone work.

This release includes both Stravinsky’s original version which famously caused one of the biggest scandals in music history, as well as the version later revised by the composer in 1967. The original version was reconsutrcted from Stravinsky’s autograph score of the work. The autograph score is hold by the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel, Switzerland.

This is a x2 CD set, released on the 'Sony Classical' label & contains an exclusive bonus track - David Zinman explaining & demonstrating the differences between the two versions.
