Notes and Editorial Reviews

It was exactly a century ago Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps shocked and overwhelmed its first audience, provoking a now-legendary riot at its Paris premiere whose notoriety and magnitude were unprecedented in the history of classical music. The opening-night audience included, among the ladies, gentlemen and diplomats, such luminaries as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Proust, Gertrude Stein, Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy.
