Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky Ost
This disc contains the soundtrack to the 2009 Jan Kounen film Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky. I loved the film and the music from start to finish. However, the main attraction is the stunning 2003 Berlin performance of the complete The Rite of Spring (Le Sacre du printemps)from Sir Simon Rattle and the great Berlin Philharmonic. This exciting account is now my first choice version of Stravinsky’s masterwork. I don’t believe this superb performance is available anywhere else on CD.
