Igor Stravinsky, Le Sacre du Printemps; Berliner Philharmoniker and Herbert von Karajan

Igor Stravinsky, Le Sacre du Printemps: Part I –  2. The Harbingers of Spring, Dance of the Adolescents.  Performed by the Berliner Philharmoniker and Herbert von Karajan.

Karajan

This caused riots in Paris?  In Paris??  I guess times have changed.  This almost sounds like it could be from a Disney movie. It would fit right in with parts of The Lion King.  My little nieces would love dancing along to this piece.  Seriously, I do know that this was featured in Fantasia (wasn’t it?).  I can’t listen to it without picturing dinosaurs lifting up their heads and looking around.  Anyway, I guess that’s what Small meant when he wrote about “this ability of our society to absorb into itself and neutralize revolt that has characterized the history of music […] in our century”.
