Antal Dorati recorded Le Sacre several times during his long career, but this recording, originally released as Mercury SR 90253, is the grandaddy of them all. In this performance, unlike all the others, the real savagery of the music comes through with primal force. It was Antal Dorati and the Minneapolis SO doing The Rite of Spring. I was bowled over, and I still feel the same way. No one has bettered this version for sheer drama. La lectura que hace el gran Antal Dorati, de estos dos Ballets de Igor Stravinsky, son de tal intensidad, que usted sentirá que se le mueve el piso. Cómo responde la Minneapolis! Después de escuchar usted estas versiones quedara lleno de energía positiva.
Antal Doráti, KBE (9 April 1906 – 13 November 1988) was a Hungarian-born conductor and composer who became a naturalized American citizen in 1943. Antal Doráti was born in Budapest, where his father Alexander Doráti was a violinist with the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra and his mother Margit Kunwald was a piano teacher. He studied at the Franz Liszt Academy with Zoltán Kodály and Leo Weiner for composition and Béla Bartók for piano
Minneapolis Symphony/Antal Dorati (1954). Berlin’s sostenuto style is a principal fault, he continues. The music is alien to the culture of its performers.
