Description: Striking another blow for documentary precision, this small French label (which doesn't even have a website) has issued a disc with a thrilling transcription of Stravinsky's famous ballet without telling us who did the transcription! At least they tell us that it was done from the two-piano version. Which is good because it explains why there are two organists listed: it must have been transcribed for four-hands organ. Because there certainly aren't two organs in this church. As to who is playing the other two works, that's up to you to guess, but Latry being much more famous and a generation older than his Korean colleague, we'll assume it is he. Olivier Latry, Shin-Young Lee (Muhleisen organ of Notre-Dame de Bon Voyage, Cannes).
