Complete your Stravinsky : Michael Tilson Thomas, Ralph Grierson collection. Mechanical, cold rendition of a fiery masterpiece. The unflattering sound does not help. Fazil Say version (overdubbing himself) is superior from any point of view.

Michael Tilson Thomas and Ralph Grierson’s four-handed piano performance is proudly billed as the first recording of its kind. It’s not as complete as a traditional Rite performed by orchestra-there’s no way to replicate the solo bassoon that opens The Adoration of Earth -but it illuminates the delicate frenzy at the heart of the piece. The piano is harsh and beautiful in the second movement, The Augurs of Spring, and the penultimate movement, Ritual Action of the Ancestors, tenses up as the notes bounce and teeter chaotically.
