Vote: Your Favorite Rite of Spring Recordings
Add Your Voice to our Upcoming Centennial Celebration
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
On May 29, Q2 Music will do something it's never done before: play one piece in numerous contrasting interpretations for an entire 24-hour period.
We believe Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring can not only stand up to such a full-blown marathon treatment, but also demands it and rewards obsessive listening. ArkivMusic.com lists over 200 recordings of The Rite; host Phil Kline will bring you the absolute best of the best – from the historical to the modern to the alternative – but we also want to know what recordings you prefer.
Vote below for your favorite, and if you have a particular recording we've missed, please let us know about it in comments area and we'll consider including it on May 29.
Q2 Music's Rite of Spring Fever is a 24-hour marathon on Wednesday, May 29 hosted by Phil Kline of contrasting interpretations of Stravinsky's masterpiece and a complementary web portal of interviews, testimonials and interactive features.
