      In this week’s program we begin a three part adventure tracing the musical influence of modernist titans Igor Stravinsky and Arnold Schoenberg from the early 1900s to the present day. In part one we start with the first performance on the Le Sacre du Printemps, 100 years ago in 1913, and uncover the path that lead all the way to late 20th and 21st century minimalism.
