Today we start a two week exploration of Stravinsky's earthshakingly revolutionary Rite of Spring. Focusing on Part 1, we'll talk about the cast of characters involved in the ballet: Diaghilev, Nijinsky, Roerich, Monteux, and of course Stravinsky. These 5 men were part of a performance that quite literally changed the musical world. We'll also talk about the famous riot that made the opening night a sensation, the hidden folk music influence on Stravinsky, and Stravinsky's remarkable rhythmic invention.
