Stefan Goldmann delivers a ground breaking edit of a classic: A minimalistic cut up on the edges of perception celebrates one of the most thrilling works in music - Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre Du Printemps! Staying 100% true to the original score, he moves through over a dozen classic recordings of the work in 146 individually treated segments. Nothing has been left out, nothing has been added. Still everything totally changes every few seconds. Probably the most radical approach to editing & electrifying classical music ever. These are some of the most revolutionary notes in the whole history of music. Written in 1913, Le Sacre Du Printemps redefined what music could be, much as Beethoven’s Eroica had done a century before. While it’s debut performance caused massive riots, it has become one of the most celebrated works of music ever since. It has been performed and recorded by basically every reknown conductor and orchestra in the world and is one of the most often played orchestral works of all times. Stefan Goldmann’s edit is as radically innovative: nothing has been left out, nothing has been added. Staying 100% true to the score, he blends through dozens of recordings of Sacre in 146 individually treated segments - without ever messing with Stravinsky’s intentions. Every few seconds the listener encounters a different performance, room and recording set up. A minimalistic journey into the depths of interpretation and concert hall acoustics, microphone positioning and mixdown decisions. A silent and masterful celebration of an original. This disc also features a “classic” live recording of Sacre by Pierre Monteux.
