my lovely boyfriend bought me a beautiful miniature Tibetan singing bowl for my birthday :3
ahhh! my first composition, made in 2008 on Sibelius
Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring (Pt 1.)
So eerie. This ballet caused a riot in 1913 because of the pagan ritual references, as well as the way in which the unconventional way the instrumentation was composed and the dancers moved about the stage.
The original costuming and choreography was thought to be lost, until Joffrey Ballet revived it through much research and dedication.
You can read more about it all over the Internet, but for now…just watch.
(and then go to YouTube and watch the rest after you finish this clip.)
