Stravinsky: Le Sacre du Printemps (Vinyl)
Quoted by Bernstein himself that the century-old Le Sacre du Printemps is "one your everyday volcanic masterpieces...of such originality and power that it still overwhelms us." Of course, this 1958 recording with Bernstein conducting the New York Philharmonic is a tour de force performance of the piece that was so "volcanic" at its Paris premiere that it started a legendary riot. This wonderful new audio transfer is accompanied by photos of Bernstein and Igor Stravinsky from the recording sessions and more.
