STRAVINSKY The Rite of Spring

Sense the vibrations, smell the earth. Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring is raw and unfiltered. It speaks to our primal selves and leaves no listeners unmoved. Guillaume Connesson breaks the granite of a lunar landscape, then rocks out in an underground club. Stéphane Denève introduces virtuoso cellist Gautier Capuçon, “among the greatest of cellists” (The Arts Desk) to SLSO audiences.
