Igor Stravinsky hit music like a thunderclap. With Petrushka (1911) and The Rite of Spring (1913), he sent shockwaves that continue to ripple through music today. Driven, frenetic, and strikingly original, each score is as unique in character as it is wondrous. Hear these seminal works conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, and Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto played by the “rapturously lyrical” (The Guardian) Leonidas Kavakos.
