Pick the Piece that Puts a Spring in Your Step
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Spring has finally sprung — well, at least calendar-wise — and WQXR is playing music throughout the day to celebrate the longer days and warmer temperatures to come. We need your help to decide what spring-inspired piece we should play in our Showdown.
We gave you spring-inspired pieces to pick from and it was Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring that held on to its place at the top of your spring playlist. At noon today, we played the piece performed by Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre with conductor Valery Gergiev.
