Review of #2: The Rite of Spring, or when Lenny met Igor

Listen to the The Rite of Spring and tell me it's not the first heavy metal piece ever composed. You could disagree with me but I'd still win. Tell me the riot caused by the first performance didn't inspire future mosh pits.

This piece has stories related to Stravinsky's composing this piece and, of the latter years, stories inspired from the meeting of Leonard Bernstein and Stravinsky. I wouldn't mind believing them to be true, even if they didn't turn out to be. I do mind reviewers doing the accent in the piece, but it makes the stories even more outrageous. It's preferred that way. How much will you enjoy this piece? Right till the end, my dear.
