Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
Stravinsky: Le Sacre du printemps
24 Nov 2017
Composer: Stravinsky, Debussy
Other participants: Daniele Gatti
Four years before his death, in 1914, Debussy himself led the Concertgebouw Orchestra in his Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and was met at the stage door by an applauding crowd after the performance. Stravinsky made his first guest appearance with the orchestra in 1924, after which he returned regularly. He conducted his Sacre twice in a single day in 1926 to long and loud ovations.
Recorded live at Concertgebouw Amsterdam on 11, 12 & 19 January 2017
