The Rite of Spring

Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring” is one of my favorite pieces of music. It is hauntingly serene and creepy at the same time and, according to the stories anyway, there were riots during it’s premier in Paris in 1913. It seems turn of the century Parisians didn’t seal with the pagan nature of the story and the thoroughly animistic choreography.
