About this Performance
The Rite of Spring helped set the stage for 20th century music. Characterized by its innovative orchestration and ferocious polyrhythms, Stravinsky’s ballet score allows individual players and instrument sections to shine brightly throughout. Teddy Abrams leads this LA Phil specialty piece along with a jubilant work “punctuated by alternately elegant and goofball entrances,” as described by composer Michael Tilson Thomas.
