About

The London Philharmonic Orchestra performs Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, which changed the course of modern music at its premiere in Paris in 1913.

It wasn't just that a riot broke out. The rhythmic power and primal energy of Stravinsky's volcanic score are so ferocious that a century later we're still dealing with the aftershock. With Juanjo Mena conducting, this should be electrifying.

Benedetto Lupo, meanwhile, is the soloist in the dark, defiant Piano Concerto that Ravel wrote for a pianist who lost an arm in the Great War. This is music at its most uncompromising. In its quieter way, Debussy's sensuous Printemps is every bit as subversive.
