On May 29, 1913 a riot-inducing work of art, Rite of Spring, was performed at a Paris theater. One hundred years to the day later, the Spoleto Festival will pay homage to Igor Stravinky’s modern musical masterpiece with music spanning most of that century. The Music in Time concert includes several works by Stravinsky, his contemporaries Bela Bartok, Claude Debussy, Anton Webern, and later composers Edgar Varèse, Steve Reich, and Iannis Xenakis, who came under Rite of Spring’s spell.

Approx. 1 hour, 15 minutes. Part of Spoleto Festival USA's Music in Time series.
