A piece of music so wild, so barbaric and yet so brilliant that it incited a riot, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring is terrifying, beautiful and awe-inspiring. Branford Marsalis, who belongs to one of the greatest American musical dynasties, joins the BSO for two melodic French pieces for saxophone and orchestra.
