THE RITE OF SPRING
Music that changed the course of history: Wagner’s Prelude and “Liebestod” (“Love-death”) opened new horizons with its yearning melody and unquenchable quicksand harmonies. Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring sparked a riot at its premiere with its pulse-pounding rhythms, while Debussy’s delicate colorations inspired a more subtle musical revolution.
