Rare and Unreleased Horenstein

"I'm very excited about this new CD from Pristine, the 20th in the series, that features beautifully restored live recordings of 20th century works not normally associated with Horenstein.

The 9-minute 'Sinfonia Partita' (1952) by Marcel Mihalovici, here receiving its French première, is the first and only recording of this powerful neoclassic piece for string orchestra.

The other two works on this CD, Bartók's 'Concerto for Orchestra' and Stravinsky's 'Symphony in Three Movements', have appeared once before but this is their first publication in stereo, and the improvement in clarity and impact is remarkable.

A must-have disc for all admirers of Horenstein's art."
