The New York Philharmonic’s third album on Decca Gold features performances of Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du printemps and Debussy’s La Mer from concerts in Jaap van Zweden’s opening weeks as Music Director in 2018. The New York Times wrote that in the opening performance of Le Sacre du printemps, “Mr. van Zweden drew incisive, blazingly powerful and vehement playing from the Philharmonic.” Two weeks later, The Times described the performance of La Mer as “bold, almost cinematic.”
