Stravinsky:

The Rite of Spring

Symphony in 3 movements


“Jonathan Nott and the Bamberger Symphoniker have plenty of shock and awe, notably in the transition to the 'Glorification of the Chosen One'; but the effect, if not the volume, is muted, while the poetry and excitement is only rarely apparent. …the Symphony in Three Movements are significantly better, though not enough to challenge Simon Rattle's masterly account (EMI).” BBC Music Magazine, January 2008 ***

“Jonathan Nott has certainly put his mark on the Bamberg Orchestra: the quality and personality of their playing is transformed. …the opening of the Rite is magically evocative, matched by a string ensemble of comparable calibre. The beginning of Part 2 is poignantly unearthly in feeling... the "Glorification of the Chosen One" makes a truly malignant impact and the closing "Sacrificial Dance" moves to a powerful climax... The performance of the engaging Symphony in Three Movements makes a perfect foil, a beautifully judged performance that relishes the syncopations and lighter scoring.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2007

The Firebird - excerpts


In 1913, with Europe on the brink of war, a fashionable Parisian audience reacted with hostile frenzy to the premiere of Igor Stravinsky's new work, The Rite of Spring. The ballet's shocking music and dance provoked a riot that evening and soon afterwards was recognized as perhaps the most revolutionary piece of the 20th century. It still has that reputation today.

In this DVD, Michael Tilson Thomas and the musicians of the San Francisco Symphony take you from the salons of St. Petersburg to the villages where Stravinsky found inspiration in the earthly power of Russian folk music and dance. MTT then retraces Stravinsky's journey to the cultural crossroads of pre-war Paris. There, in collaboration with the great impresario Diaghilev and his star dancer Nijinsky, Stravinsky developed the shocking, erotic, and violent evocation of pagan Russia that became The Rite of Spring.

Nearly a century after this wild rainforest of sound was performed, The Rite of Spring remains as exhilirating and liberating as music can be. MTT and the San Francisco Symphony show you why.

“it's rhythmically taut, but rather too polished to convey the earthy danger of the music that comes across strongly in the documentary...Still, the package as a whole is a good introduction to this masterpiece.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2013 ****

“At a time when America’s major orchestras are struggling to define their missions and maintain audiences, the San Francisco Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas is an exception.” New York Times
