    Le Sacre reborn!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bntEvGmmD0M

    Why have I only just seen this?!?! Sorry if it's been up before, but I have done a search here and can't seem to find it.

    The incomparable Olivier Latry and his wife Shin-Young Lee give the most stunning performance that I've seen in quite some time (not to undermine Latry's magnificent first half-hour, but the business really starts at the 33 minute mark)

    Okay, so you probably need to appreciate Stravinsky and at the very least acknowledge The Rite of Spring as being the significant work that it was/is in 20th Century history, but even that aside, this was a breathtaking tour de force (in fact, I did forget to breathe on several occasions!). I know I've already written a few words, but seriously, this was beyond words for me - just amazing.

    Not mine either, couldn't stay with it, I'll stick with mostly baroque.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Wonderful program ... impeccable organ as well.

    The "other" St Bavo's in Haarlem (the repaired Adema organ was the largest in the Netherlands on its completion, not sure if it still is, but it's a damn nice instrument)
