Stravinsky: Le Roi des Etoiles; Les Sacre de printemps / Thomas, Boston Symphony
Michael Tilson Thomas's recordings were made in l972 in Boston's Symphony Hall. His Rite was highly praised when originally issued and remains one of the great performances of this masterpiece. The recording always was praised for its sonic quality but now, in this first release of the multi-channel original, we can enjoy it in stunning audio. The engineers did a spectacular job of capturing the sound of a huge orchestra performing in an acoustically-perfect hall. The orchestra is spread out in front of you, instrument placement is precise, and rear speakers are utilized most effectively to create the sound of a live performance......This is one of the finest SACDs I've ever heard. Thank you Pentatone!! - Classical CD, September, 2015.
