The Philadelphia Orchestra, under the direction of Leopold Stokowski, gave the US premiere of Stravinsky's Le Sacre du printemps in 1922.  Now, a century after the work's Paris premiere, the Orchestra and current music Director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, honor this legacy with a new recording on Deutsche Grammophon.  Joining the Stravinsky masterpiece are four orchestral transcriptions by Stokowski of works by Bach and Stravinsky.  The album will be released on September 24 on the eve of the Orchestra's Opening Night Concert and Gala.
