Notes and Editorial Reviews
This 20 CD set celebrates the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring in Paris on 29 May 1913. It is widely regarded as the most significant event in 20th century classical music and the shock of this revolutionary score can still be felt today.

Included in this collection are all 38 versions of the work from the catalogues of Decca, Deutsche Grammophon and Philips, an extraordinary initiative.

In addition to digital recordings by Antal Dorati, Riccardo Chailly, Pierre Boulez, Valery Gergiev and Esa-Pekka Salonen, there are classic performances by Pierre Monteux, Leonard Bernstein, Bernard Haitink, Herbert von Karajan and Sir Georg Solti. The set also includes three recordings of the composers arrangement for piano duet.

Also included is an historical 1935 recording from the archives of Deutsche Grammophon of Stravinsky's Violin Concerto, conducted by the composer himself, with Samuel Dushkin as the soloist, who gave the premiere performance of the work.
