The Rite of Spring

  • Type: Orchestral Composition
The Rite of Spring is an extraordinarily savage affair....If you like, it's primitive music with every modern convenience. Claude Debussy
The choreography is ridiculous, the music sheer cacophony ... taken together, it might be the work of a madman ... sheer cacophony. The public hissed, laughed - and applauded. Giacomo Puccini
the most important piece of music of the 20th century Leonard Bernstein
