The Rite of Spring

“These are some of the most revolutionary notes in the whole history of music, the climax of the sacrificial dance of the “Rite of Spring.” So begins Michael Tilson Thomas’ and the San Franscicso Orchestra’s “Keeping Score”, an hour long film about this piece.

Most people tend to forget that the “Rite of Spring” is a ballet. The music, though it can surely stand alone, was meant to accompany dancers, and the dancing, which was choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky, in this ballet was just as revolutionary (and even more so depending on who you speak to) than the music.
