Notes & Reviews:
This program records the meeting of two Russian musical giants, as Valéry Gergiev, the most charismatic and dynamic conductor of our day, rehearses, performs and discusses Stravinsky's masterpiece. Innovative, inspiring and exhilarating, the Sacre du printemps is close to the maestro's heart. Among a wide range of archive material used in the programme is a rare clip of Igor Stravinsky conducting the Sacre, as well as footage of him talking about his composition.Notes & Reviews:
