The balletʼs premiere in 1913 provoked a scandal. Today, 100 years later, it is a “classic”: Stravinskyʼs Le Sacre du printemps. To celebrate the anniversary of its premiere, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Sir Simon Rattle have made a new recording of the work, together with Stravinskyʼs ballet Apollon Musagète and the Symphonies of Wind Instruments. This live recording from November 2012 was released by EMI on 22 March 2013 and is also now available in the Philharmonie shop.
