They rioted after the premiere of The Rite of Spring. But Igor Stravinsky, linked to one of the most notorious events in musical history, is also the composer of such famous neo-classical ballets as The Firebird, Petrouchka and Pulcinella and a big band concerto written for Woody Herman. And because it’s twelve hours long, audiences will be able to hear and see a little of everything, including orchestral and chamber works, music theater, dance and opera. With hundreds of performers, Wall to Wall will follow Stravinsky from St. Petersburg to Los Angeles, from ballet to opera, from neo-classicism to atonal fireworks. As always, this “gift to the City of New York” is free to the public.

Schedule here.
