Brussels Philharmonic Recordings released its fourth CD in January 2013: after Debussy, Dvořák and Tchaikovsky, it is now, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the thrilling première of the ‘Sacre du Printemps‘, Stravinsky’s turn.
For the first time here, the Brussels Philharmonic is issuing a live recording of a 2009 performance at the Cité de la Musique in Paris. 
The première of the ‘Rite of Spring’ (Le Sacre du Printemps) on 28 May 1913 at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris caused a scandal that has since become a legend.
The live recording of the concert shows the commitment of the musician, whose work and indeed entire life is focused on that one moment. And not to mention the stimulus added by the interaction with a live audience.
