The Philadelphia Orchestra: Haydn, Schumann, Stravinsky


Mar 2, 2013


Composed for the Ballets Russes, Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring remains one of the most powerful, unique, and challenging orchestral pieces ever written. The modern costumes, sets, and choreography ignited a riot at its Paris premiere. Here, the work will be performed in the concert version without any additional visual elements. Stravinsky’s masterpiece is contrasted by Schumann’s “Spring” Symphony—a work with a more festive and romantic view of spring. This is paired with Haydn’s bright and lively Symphony No. 38 to open the program.
