Esa-Pekka Salonen: Le Sacre du Printemps (SACD)

Item #: 013875

Quick Overview

LA PHIL RECOMMENDED: Salonen’s live recording at Walt Disney Concert Hall on this hybrid SACD simply could not sound any better. Stunning.

This is Esa-Pekka Salonen’s debut live recording from the Walt Disney Concert Hall and his first recording as the principal conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic on this label. The central piece, Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps was conducted by Salonen on the inaugural night of the Hall in 2003, a masterpiece that becomes something of a miracle within the outstanding acoustics of the Walt Disney Hall.

This recording captures the energy, beauty and musical power of this extraordinary collaboration.
