Rachmaninoff – Symphony No. 3
Stravinsky – The Rite of Spring

Two great Russian composers who chose utterly different creative paths bring the Philharmonic season to a close. Sergei Rachmaninoff, who remained true to his romantic ideals until his death in 1943 (“I cannot cast out the old way of writing”), completed his radiant Symphony No. 3 in 1936. Twenty-three years earlier, Igor Stravinsky had shattered all concepts of what orchestral music could be in his ballet masterpiece The Rite of Spring, regarded by many as the single most important and influential piece of music of the 20th century.
