Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring

Playing on the iPod is the formidable "Glorification of the chosen victim" from part 2 (The Sacrifice) of Stravinsky's barbarian The Rite of Spring. This particular interpretation is utterly awesome: Valery Gergiev conducts the Kirov Orchestra in a historical 2001 recording. Well worth buying the CD.
