Monday, Feb. 18, 2013: “Rite of Spring” from the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

February 18, 2013

Tonight at 7:00 on The Evening Concert it's the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra led by Music Director Edo de Waart. On the program: Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” which had its premiere 100 years ago this coming May 29th. There were actual fistfights in the audience that night.  Hear what all the fuss was, and still is, about.  Also on the program, Schubert’s “Great C major Symphony”.
