Join the age-old ritual of welcoming the rebirth of life following Winter's pall. Paul Grabowsky and Gabriella Smart perform Stravinsky's own transcription of The Rite of Spring. The Paris première involved one of the most famous classical music riots in history, yet this seminal work has inspired over a century of music. In this tradition, this concert also features two world premières by Grabowsky and Mary Finsterer.
