Stravinsky // The Rite of Spring Listen Now

A piece of music that is so wild, so barbaric and yet so brilliant that it incited a riot, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring is terrifying, beautiful and awe-inspiring. Inspired by folksongs with roots of pagan times, the composer pushed the boundaries of classical instruments to evoke earthy and bestial sounds. Join Marin Alsop and explore Stravinsky's galvanizing masterpiece.
