Leonard Bernstein: The Rite of Spring in Rehearsal

60 minutes
ML457 .B5661 1988

"I think of the times we all experience in adolescence and I remember like yesterday. It's spring and you lie there, your face on the ground, and you want to kiss it. You listen to the grass grow, and you want it just to enfold you. You are leaning on a tree-trunk - you want to take it in your arms."

The maestro inspires a youth orchestra to give a primal, earthy performance of Igor Stravinsky's masterpiece. Featuring the Scheswig-Holstein Music Festival Orchestra.
