Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Scriabin's Poem of Ecstasy are, in many ways, the perfect coupling. Both works are, in their way, extreme, and both works suit Gergiev's unparalleled ability for penetrating to the heart of a score. He paints the Rite of Spring in vivid, almost garish colours, at all times reading the score afresh. Philips' superb recording successfully conveys both the visceral impact of "Spring Rounds" and the sheer raw energy of "Augurs of Spring". There is a sense of inevitability about the "Ritual Dance of the Ancestors"; the Sacrificial Dance, which follows, has its tension heightened because of (rather than despite) Gergiev's slightly deliberate tread. Scriabin's Poem of Ecstasy is late romanticism writ large. Above and beyond the perfumed sonorities, Gergiev identifies and projects an underlying disquiet, from the dark trumpet figures through to the shattering climax. At times the Kirov Orchestra is positively luminous. It is Gergiev's long-range grasp of the piece that is most impressive: the resultant cumulative effect is close to overpowering. --Colin ClarkeSee all Product Description

The last track on the MP3 collection cut short after ~12 minutes. So I got a refund from Amzon on the MP3 album and then ordered the CD. Read morePublished on 21 Nov. 2012 by mike williams

Having seen Gergiev on the TV had to buy the CD, and was not disappointed. I have seen the Rite live and have other audio versions but this certainly is one of the best. Read morePublished on 15 Feb. 2009 by K.Castle
