Great Music of the 20th Century

The Great Courses
Genre: 
Relive The Rite of Spring's riotous premiere, and examine the qualities that made it the most influential musical work of the 20th century. Observe how Stravinsky evoked ancient pagan rituals through stunning rhythmic asymmetry, bi-tonal harmony, and other daring compositional techniques. Take account of how the Rite changed the way composers thought about rhythm, melody, and orchestration.

Great Music of the 20th Century. Episode 5, Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.
