Rite of Spring

Berlioz, Wagner, and Stravinsky were musical mavericks who shook up the status quo and created new paths that changed the face of music. In one of the most infamous premieres in history, the Rite of Spring caused a near riot, and over a century later the music sounds as fresh and savage as ever.

"Stravinsky sat down to play a piano reduction of the [ Rite of Spring ] score. Before he got very far I was convinced he was raving mad ... My only comment at the end was that such music would surely cause a scandal." - Pierre Monteux, conductor of the Rite of Spring premiere
