The Houston Symphony performs The Rite of Spring and Rach 3 at Jones Hall


The Houston Symphony performs two works by Russian composers.

The first, Stravinsky's The Right of Spring, was so innovative for its time, it caused a riot. Leonard Bernstein said it "got the best dissonances anyone ever thought up, and the best asymmetries and polytonalities and polyrhythms and whatever else you care to name." Translation: It's going to make you think.

The second piece is Rach 3 or Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30. (You can see why it got a nickname.) The piece is known for its intense musical and technical demands and is considered to be one of the most difficult concertos around.
