A selection of favourite pieces and publications, including Rite of Spring and Symphony of Psalms.
The Russian-born composer Igor Stravinsky is widely regarded as the most original and influential composer of the 20th century. The première in Paris of 'The Rite of Spring' met with such astonishment & hostility that it famously caused a riot almost as ferocious as the piece itself, and remains one of the main landmarks in the long history of western music.
"Music is given to us specifically to make order of things, to move from an anarchic, individualistic state to a regulated, perfectly conscious one, which alone ensures vitality and durability." — Igor Stravinsky
