Only familiar with Rite of Spring, but it's definitely an amazing work. Very base and pagan-esque, I like it.

I like Stravinsky less than Bartok, Ives, and Schoenberg. For some reason, Stravinsky is near the bottom of all the 20th C composers I respect a lot. But still, like I said, I have a lot of respect for him.

I like Stravinsky less than Bartok, too. However, I really really like Les Noces, and like Rite of Spring.

Igor Stravinsky is the ****ing BOOMMBB!! <3 The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra's recording of The Firebird Suite is one of my all-time favorites. The Russian stuff is the best. Because I'm a metalhead, the extreme intensity of Russian orchestral music is perfect for me.

Listening to Firebird now. That and The Rite of Spring are gorgeous. Haven't attentively listened to anything else ... but definitely will. It took me a very long time to start appreciating his music.

In fact, Stravinsky had a house above the river in my home town in W. Ukraine (that he occasionally used in 1890-1914). I like to think that he composed The Rite of Spring contemplating ice breaking on the river at early spring There's been a museum and music school there, now closed as they are restoring it to its original shape.

I absolutely fecking love The Rite of Spring, I have a hard time thinking of it as *gorgeous*, tho. Terrifying is an adjective I use for it...
