Pictures at an Exhibition / The Rite of Spring

Andreï Vieru, Dan Grigore
    • Apple Music

    Two really extraordinary scores…
    Drawing their strength from a certain vision of Old Russia, Mussorgsky's and Stravinsky's two most famous ‘orchestral’ works were both originally written for the piano. Andrei Vieru demonstrates the emotional heights to which the original version of Pictures from an Exhibition can attain – to the borderline of the fantastic. As for the transcription for two pianos of the proemial Sacre du printemps, it was made by Stravinsky himself, and destined for two outstanding pianists. Astounding!

    This title was released for the first time in 1997.
