Tilson Thomas' bracing rendition of Le Sacre du printemps can be regarded as a tribute to the composer, with whom he had worked closely before his death in 1971. Few performances of this dynamic ballet match this one for instrumental brilliance, sonic intensity, and visceral impact, and the quadraphonic recording gives it a clear separation of parts that highlights many essential details.

A young Michael Tilson Thomas leads the Boston Symphony Orchestra and, in the cantata, the Men's Chorus of the NE Conservatory Choir in these original quadraphonic recordings from 1972, newly remastered by and released on the Pentatone label. Le Roi des Etoiles Composed by Igor Stravinsky. Within a year of its tumultuous, disrupted and destructive reception at its 1913 Theatre des Champs-Elysees, Paris premiere, Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring) had made Igor Stravinsky, who'd written the work on commission from Sergei Diaghilev for his Ballet Russes, a household name. While working on Le Sacre, Stravinsky also wrote Le roi des etoiles, a cantata for male choir and orchestra based on a poem by the symbolist poet Konstantin Balmont that some musicologists have interpreted as a kind of Christian counterpart to the pagan images of Russia in Sacre.

Michael Tilson Thomas brings out the cool tenderness of the score, and the recording, made at a live performance, is truthful. His Firebird is lushly dramatic, and the Rite's barbaric thrust is leavened by some soulful wind playing. Recorded competition in the two ballets is fierce (along with Gergiev's recent Firebird on Philips, there are classic versions by Ansermet, Dorati, Haitink, and others, including the composer) but Perséphone makes this set an attractive proposition. Probably one of the best recordings of Le Sacre du Printemps and L'Oiseau Feu and the best recording I've heard of Persophone, Michael Tilson Thomas and the brilliant San Francisco Symphony brings a refreshing new look to classic Stravinsky. Persophone is an abosolute gem of a work.
