The ASO’s year of Stravinsky comes to an epic conclusion with the most influential musical work of the 20th century. Like Beethoven a century before, no composer after “The Rite of Spring” is free from its influence, whether as an embrace or a reaction; the influence of Stravinsky’s masterpiece is undeniable, as is its percussive and relentless drive. The story of a virgin sacrificing herself to death has captured the imaginations of ballet and music lovers the world over.
