    Milestones of 20th-century music.
    The extraordinary rhythmic power of Les Noces is in many respects descended from The Rite of Spring. Yet it took Stravinsky more than ten years to complete this supreme masterpiece, which turned its back on orchestral hyperinflation to pioneer a new approach to timbre and musical time. An approach that was constantly renewed in his subsequent career, whatever the language employed – as can be seen in the Mass of 1948 and the Cantata of 1952. A tribute to Stravinsky at his finest from the combined talents of the RIAS Kammerchor and MusikFabrik.
    This title was released for the first time in 2006.
