About this Recording

STRAVINSKY, I. / RAVEL, M. / GERSHWIN, G.: Transcriptions and Original Piano Works (Ferrand-N'Kaoua)

Stravinsky’s groundbreaking Rite of Spring is heard on this recording in the formidable yet seldom performed solo piano transcription by the 20th-century American composer and pianist Sam Raphling. It is coupled with Ravel’s own virtuosic transcription of La Valse, Gershwin’s jazz-infused 3 Preludes and his own solo piano version of Rhapsody in Blue.
