Big Fan here, and no he wasn't of the russian 5. Orpheus, Soldier's Tale, Song of the Nightgale, Les Noces, Danses Concertantes, Ebony Concerto and Petrushka are great pieces.

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

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

Rites of Spring is probably my favorite from Stravinsky.

I've heard Firebird and Rite of Spring. Rite of Spring is truly amazing at least from beginning to end there is a definitive gradual transition from tranquility into chaos. I haven't heard any of his post-Rite of Spring works, but of what I've heard, I'm majorly a fan of.

I just went to a live orchestra on Friday and they played Suite from The Firebird. It literally blew me away! I had heard limited classical music before now but have been trying to get into it- so after the show I bought Stravinsky: The Great Ballets. The Rite of Spring was ridiculous, I loved it so much. the rhythmic composition was the most amazing I've ever heard. and since hearing it i've been listening to a good amount to classical every day

I attended the Houston Symphony Orchestra's rendition of this once. It was excellent. I'd love to attend an entire performance of The Firebird.

To see the entire thing with the actual ballet performance would be so amazing. The Firebird or the Rite of Spring. But does anyone even do that? like ever?

Last major performance was 2008, I think.

It's a life goal of mine to see The Rite of Spring live, if just the music, then so be it. I've legitimately sought out more than five different recordings of it just to hear different intricacies of it each time.

So many other great Stravinsky compositions exist beyond it too, which is just a testament to how great a body of work the man has left behind.
