Listen: Stravinsky’s lost Chant makes its record debutmain
The orchestral work that young Igor Stravinsky wrote in 1908 to mourn his teacher Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov turned up two years ago in a St Petersburg archive. The Chant Funèbre was given a modern premiere by Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra and recorded last summer by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, conductor Riccardo Chailly.
Decca will release it in January.
