C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Stravinsky

In 1913 the Paris premiere of Igor Stravinsky's revolutionary score for Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring) by Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes caused a riot (literally). Stravinsky's shockingly brutal yet rivetingly beautiful score changed the course of 20th-century Western music. Today Ken over at Down With Tyranny has the fascinating story of how America got introduced to this incredible music via Walt Disney's Fantasia.
