Good episode? Give it some love!
Allegedly, as of this posting, there are still about three weeks of spring to go. But in Houston, spring has already died of heat exhaustion. That’s why we decided to bring back this episode about Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. The episode was originally recording in the fall of 2013. This all totally makes sense. We think. Then again, it’s really hot, so this could be faulty logic. In any case, this is a great episode from the Wayback Machine about an iconic piece of music. Enjoy!
Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring was so revolutionary that its alien sounds literally incited a riot at its premiere. Dr. Ana María Otamendi, Venezuelan pianist and professor at the University of Houston tells us why! And btw, we areaware that it’s Fall. But we don’t even care!
Audio production by Todd “Travesty” Hulslander with aspersions cast by Dacia Clay.
