To celebrate its 100th anniversary, an electronic realization of the Igor Stravinsky masterpiece done in the classic style of Switched-On Bach/Tomita - all vintage synthesizers/keyboards!
Marc Spooner (keyboardist for American symphonic progressive rock band Metaphor) has recorded an all-synthesizer (and some Mellotron) version of Stravinsky's masterpiece in time for the 100th anniversary of the famous riotous premiere of the ballet. "I've always been a huge fan of the Wendy Carlos and Tomita and Synergy albums and no one had ever done an electronic version of the entire score of The Rite, so I figured I'd do it myself! It was created with a collection of vintage Moog, ARP, and Roland synths with a dash of a modern Kurzweil plus a generous helping of Mellotron."
A Rite of Spring can be ordered direct for $10 (+$2 for shipping).
A Rite of Spring is also now available from CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon and will be coming soon to other CD vendors!
