Stravinsky Rite of Spring


"Has to be heard to be believed... profoundly touching... a compelling atmospheric performance."
"Stunning, positively primeval...with a breathtaking finale...brilliantly transferred to disc."
"Zander's live recording with the Boston Philharmonic brings a hard-hitting colourful performance, directly related to the pianola version with which it is paired..."
"Mr. Zander's orchestra plays with exhilarating authority. The Finale is positively harrowing: cross rhythms explode against one another with brilliant virtuosity. That the performance was taped live makes it doubly impressive...the sound is superb, the interpretation likewise."
John Rockwell - The New York Times
"...One of the greatest recordings of the year... the recorded sound will take your breath away... an audiophile's dream... a performance which would do any orchestra proud, a thoroughly convincing interpretation and one of our greatest Sacres..."
Fanfare - Leslie Gerber
"...One of the most extraordinary discs for some time...has to be heard to be believed...the performance has a blazing intensity that few of its slickly produced studio rivals can match...You could not say you truly know the work without it."

"Stunning, positively primeval...with a breathtaking finale...brilliantly transferred to disc."
