About this playlist
The legendary Rite of Spring is often the first thing that springs to mind when you mention Igor Stravinsky, but there's so much more to the story. Stravinsky was a composer always pushing himself to experiment, and you can hear works of all kinds in his repertoire. From the surprisingly 'traditional' Symphony No. 1, to the Chant Funèbre and sacred works influenced by the Russian Orthodox choral tradition.
