BBC Music Magazine gives Stravinsky: Les Noces 5 stars!

'Hearing Stravinsky’s long-desired but originally unfulfilled version of Les Noces – so compellingly realised between Verbey and these fine musicians – is worth the price of entry alone.' - by Daniel Jaffé

“Earthy, lean and superbly performed”

The CD review by Andrew Clements for The Guardian:

An early unfinished version of the 1923 landmark work, completed by Theo Verbey almost 100 years after Stravinsky conceived it, is earthy, lean and superbly performed.

World premiere recording of Theo Verbey’s completion of Stravinsky’s Les Noces in a rare 1919 version released

World premiere recording of Stravinsky’s Les Noces in a rare version of 1919 by Ensemble Aedes and Les Siècles conducted by Mathieu Romano.

“This recording is the result of a project conceived by the choreographer Dominique Brun, director of the dance company Les Porteurs d’Ombre, who asked me to provide the music for a new programme, Nijinska / Voilà la femme, which was premiered at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris in March 2021. It comprises two major works, Stravinsky’s Les Noces and Ravel’s Bolero, both of which were originally choreographed by Bronislava Nijinska for the Ballets Russes.” - Mathieu Romano
