    Synopsis


    Explore the origins of composer Igor Stravinski's most audacious work as Michael Tilson Thomas and the musicians of the San Francisco Symphony travel throughout the Russia to seek out the true story of Stravinski's landmark collaboration with Diaghilev and Nijinsky. As war loomed on the horizon and Stravinski made his way through the streets of Paris, the seeds were planted for a revolutionary piece of work that would, upon its premiere in 1913, send even the most fashionable of Parisians into a riotous rage. Of course the reputation of "The Rites of Spring" continues to endure, and in addition to offering a revealing look at the story of this masterful work, this release also offers a special performance of "The Rites of Spring" by the San Francisco Symphony. ~ Jason Buchanan
