The recording will be made live at a series of subscription concerts next month.
Esa-Pekka Salonen will conduct Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain, and Bartok's Piano Concerto No. 2, with Lang Lang as soloist, on January 12 and 13. On January 14 and 15 the Suite from Bartok's The Miraculous Mandarin will replace the Mussorgsky piece. Everything except the piano concerto will be recorded for the Deutsche Grammophon CD.
The U.S. premiere of Salonen's Helix, which was to be performed on those dates, has been bumped to the 2006-07 season, according to the paper.
