“The whole tremendous richness of this epochal score opens up in a new way the recording by Dennis Russel Davies of both the last version for orchestra and the version for piano four hands.” (Fono Forum, November 2014)
Although premiered in 1913, the score of “Le Sacre” appeared only in 1922 in print. The piano reduction, however, was already published in 1913. This served to rehearse the ballet and was derived from the Particell (draft as a shortened score). Thus, conclusions can be drawn on the composition process. In this recording both versions are compared.
