+ About the Performance
This program was recorded 03/18/2006 at Symphony Space.

They rioted after the premiere of The Rite of Spring, but Igor Stravinsky represents more than that notorious day ni musical history. His wildly eclectic body of work includes the neo-classical ballet pulcinella and a big band concerto written for Benny Goodman -- and this 12-hour event provides a taste of everything. With hundreds of performers, Wall to Wall will follow Stravinsky from St. Petersburg to Los Angeles, from ballet to opera, from neo-classicism to atonal fireworks.
