2.0 out of 5 stars I think I've listened a better one..., 1 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Stravinsky: Le Sacre Du Printemps (Audio CD)
Well, there's nothing original about this CD, except for an "disappointment in an original way" that I felt.
Firstly, the idea of superposition of two distinct performances of the same player is not new, I know of an early one done by Milne (and Leith, an alias that he used), of George Gershwin's "An American In Paris", by hand-puncturing the player piano roll, which was a popular recording media in 1920s. (I think Elektra has published it somewhere between 1992-1996, but I was unable to find the exact amazon entry.)
I somehow think that I've listened a better performance of the piano version of "the rite of spring" somewhere, maybe from Pekinels, (Turkish piano duo) not sure.
The performances of Fazil Say mostly seemed better in (written) media than in CDs. :-(

What are you rambling on about? You seem to think that this is a version played on two pianos (or piano-duet) by the same person. It isn't - it's two performances of the orchestral version by the same conductor.
