Stravinsky - Stokowski

Stravinsky, Bach/Stokowski—Philadelphia Orchestra/Yannick Nézet-Séguin (DeutGram 19032)
This disc marks the debut on Deutsche Grammophon of the French-Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the new Music Director of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and it's a tribute to the legendary Leopold Stokowski, who brought the Orchestra to prominence a century ago. The focus is on Igor Stravinsky’s ballet The Rite of Spring in its centennial year, a work given its American premiere in 1922 by Stokowski and the Philadelphians. Note: this is the complete ballet, not the shortened version in Disney’s classic movie, Fantasia. Filling out the disc are popular Bach/Stokowski transcriptions, including Toccata and Fugue in D minor (which was in Fantasia), along with the Passacaglia and Fugue, the ‘Little’ Fugue in G minor, and Stravinsky's Pastorale.
