Performers: Bancroft/Malmö Symphony Orchestra
Any lover of the rite of spring should see it live sometime. Even if good recordings and HiFi equipment can be very impressive, there is something physical about a live performance with almost 100 musicians that cannot be beaten.
Sound and bass drum is of course perfect since they are the ground truth 😊 I think Bancroft did a very good interpretation, the quit parts were done with sensitivity and the loud ones were full of tension and rhythmic precision. The Malmö Symphony Orchestra performed flawlessly in spite of the very complex music.
