South Carolina Philharmonic: The Rite of Spring

Morihiko NakaharaSeveral of the greatest figures in Russian musical history provide the selections featured in this edition of Carolina Live.  The concert’s title is The Rite of Spring, and that groundbreaking work by Igor Stravinsky is performed by the South Carolina Philharmonic, which also presents a Suite from Cinderella by Sergei Prokofiev. But first, the music begins with Modest Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, in a re-orchestration by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov played by the South Carolina Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. It’s powerful music for any season on Carolina Live.
