Info for Stravinsky: Le Sacre du Printemps

Destined to become the ultimate reference recording of Stravinsky's iconic work, Currentzis and MusicAeterna give the music the authentic Russian treatment - stripping back the Western European symphonic traditions of the past century, to return to the intended Russian folk origins of the piece. The musicians used scatting and singing in order to practice the rhythms and phrasing of the folk tunes entailed in Le Sacre.

Le Sacre du Printemps is also a landmark piece in Currentzis' professional career, having had his first success in Russia with the work in 2002 in Moscow.

Since the founding of MusicAeterna, Currentzis and the ensemble have brought their decisive interpretation of 'Le Sacre' to Western European audiences several times. Most notable has been the recent collaboration with Italian director Romeo Castellucci on his re-imagining of the staged work using machines to blast 6 tonnes of bone dust, which, due to production problems was postponed from its scheduled debut in the 2013 Manchester International Festival. The debut of the staged work was eventually made in the 2014 Ruhrtriennale Festival in Germany, using our current recording of the work.
