Le Sacre du Printemps / 春の祭典
Igor Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring” is one of the defining musical works of the 20th century. We can hear it’s echoes in almost all modern music, and in the music commonly used in film and television, in particular. Stravinsky approached rhythm and harmony (and dissonance) in a way that few had ever attempted, and his impact is still being felt today. When we listen to Le Sacre du Printemps, and its sister work, L’Oiseau de Feu (火の鳥) it is difficult for us to understand how groundbreaking they were when they were first performed. Even if you are not usually a big fan of classical music, I recommend both of these pieces as a way to understand how modern music evolved in the 20th century.
