'In Le Sacre du Printemps Stravinsky stripped folk themes to their most basic melodic outlines, and often contorted them beyond recognition with added notes, and other techniques including inversion and diminution.'

Your post reminded me of the folk connection melonkali, but then i remembered it was Bela Bartok who was the folk music scholar; i love trad. arrangements from that part of the world & eastern europe, but it's for another thread perhaps

Yep, most days when I get up and don't have much to do the 1st thing I'll put on when I sit down will be Rite of Spring. Great way to wake up.

I like Firebird as well, but have only listened to it a couple times... so not nearly as much.

Another one of my favorites, for sure. He's also one of the Russian 5, if I'm not mistaken.

Anyways, I really enjoy Rite of Spring. Also Symphony of Psalms, which I think is one of his more imaginative works. Both are excellent. I've never listened to Firebird in it's entirety so I don't have a well formed opinion on it.
I have the Firebird Suite in my ipod its ok, prefer The Rite of Spring and Petrushka

PartisanRanger I advise you to listen Rachmaninoff, prelude C#m.

I love the Firebird Suite. The prog-rock band Yes used to open concerts with it (and I suppose there is some incarnation of the band existing that still does), which blended really nicely into Siberian Khatru.

Stravinsky was a badass. Rite of Spring and Firebird Suite are incredible

I love how the Classical forum is so peaceful. My father would have harsh words for Stravinsky, but fuck that.

Stravinsky is probably the most exciting 20th century composer (among many great ones, dad) of all of them.

Yes, I totally agree!
