'The Rite of Spring' Goes Solo

No orchestra. No ballet. Just piano.

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

7:00 PM

Join Q2 Music and Soundcheck to mark the 100th anniversary of Igor Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring."

 

Vicky Chow of Bang on a Can performs her solo piano arrangement of a work intended for an orchestra and a ballet troupe. Hear this groundbreaking, riot-inducing composition in an unusual, stripped-down arrangement. (Please note: Rioting is discouraged at this performance.) Hosted by Soundcheck's John Schaefer with an introduction from composer and Q2 host Phil Kline. The event is now sold out, but you can still watch our live stream or listen on the go here at 7pm.

‘The Rite of Spring Goes Solois part of Q2 Music's Rite of Spring Fever—a 24-hour marathon on May 29 hosted by Phil Kline of contrasting interpretations of Stravinsky's masterpiece and a complementary web portal of interviews, testimonials and interactive features.

Guests:

Vicky Chow and Sara Fishko
